    Pros

    You truly become part of a community. GREAT benefits. If you get involved with the university (not just as a job) but truly INVOLVED (Staff Council, Chapel Choir, etc...) you can see how your job really helps the university on an every day basis.

    Cons

    Getting stuck at a "Pay Rate" as a staff member can be disheartening. "Other duties as assigned" as staff member is a lot of your job - but if you ask the right questions going in, you'll know that all upfront.

    Advice to Management

    The staff is the heart of the working community at the University - LISTEN TO THEM MORE.

    Pros

    Decent salary and reasonably sized classes.

    Cons

    Setting up faculty in competition with each other encourages selfish behavior and discourages those who are not good cheerleaders for themselves, more so here than at other institutions I've worked at.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the compensation system and the teaching evaluation system.

    Social, not much time commitment.

    Pros

    Welcoming and tight-knit community, mission-driven institution, strong core values, excellent benefits, fantastic people. Located in the beautiful neighborhoods to the North of Baltimore City, which means that it's a pleasant drive to work regardless of where you live (as long as you don't live south of the city). Regarding the "excellent benefits"... Loyola will contribute 9% of your salary to your retirement fund, as long as you contribute 2%. Yes, I know that is a ridiculously good deal. Administrators also get one sick day and one personal day every pay period (2 weeks), which is pretty generous, especially because you also get many university holidays off (like a full week to two weeks for Christmas and New Years). Plus, there's tuition remission for both you and your children (as long as you've worked here long enough).

    Cons

    As another reviewer mentioned, it can get stagnant at times, depending on the leadership of your division/department. A lot of people have been at Loyola for many years which, while a testament to how much they like Loyola, can make it difficult to bring in new ideas or create change. There's a certain level of stability that the campus and community enjoys, for better or for worse. Also, the HR department is absolutely incompetent, unfortunately. Everyone seems to struggle with anything HR-related, whether it's getting the right benefits package or simply getting an e-mail answered. Also, the students are pretty sheltered, homogenous, and entitled... depending on where you work. Overall, I wouldn't say it's a very "dynamic" place to work. If you like working 9-to-5 with excellent benefits and flexible vacation time, you'd like Loyola.

    Advice to Management

    Stay connected with the students... they're the reason we're all here. Don't let politics and Loyola's "image" set the direction of the university. Loyola doesn't need to be the "best" (how do you even meaningfully define that?). It simply needs to do an excellent job at what it's supposed to do, which is creating men and women for and with others.

  10. I have very good colleagues and supportive supervisors.

    Pros

    Strong commitment to social justice mission, good colleagues, accessible management, good students, decent technology. Very good campus community. Campus is beautiful.

    Cons

    Not on the best financial footing. This has led to some staffing cuts and some cuts to benefits. The city has a very high crime rate.
