    Excellent Place to Work (with a few qualms)

    Administrator (Current Employee)

    ProsWelcoming 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).

    ConsAs 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 Senior ManagementStay 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.

    Great Place to work

    Office Assistant (Current Employee) Baltimore, MD

    ProsIt's a small family atmosphere

    ConsNot competative with busniess world salaries but benefits make up the difference. The best one is free tuition for yourself and children after 5 years of employment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease the raises above cost of living range.

    Great place to work in higher ed around a greater mission

    Student Development Professional (Former Employee) Baltimore, MD

    ProsJesuit ideals go into many parts of the work you can do with students, and give you a great springboard for conversations around ethics and purpose.

    ConsNot many to consider. It was a great place to work for many years before moving away from the area. If pressed, the budget is highly dependent on tuition dollars as the endowment is not as strong as it could be for this level of school. So some student development budget cuts have been necessary lately from what I'm hearing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure that people in each department maintain important autonomy over their programs.
