    Pros

    has a positive mission statement, and great job security because it is hard to get fired. if you like to work hard you should consider working here.

    Cons

    company is ungrateful, any hard work performed doesn't pay off; if you speak up you are likely to be labeled crazy or trouble or get fired.

    Advice to Management

    fire employees who are incompetent and hold annual competency exams to make sure current employees stay competent, and offer regular or annual training

    Pros

    Great Management and co-workers
    Pay is great in the IT Department

    Cons

    Unfair and unreasonable responsibility is placed upon senior employees to train new employees and be accountable for their work.
    Department over the last few years has restructured and 'rehired' employees resetting pay scales.

    Advice to Management

    Large Knowledge base of information that few employees choose to learn, often leaving huge gaps in employee quality.

    Pros

    work life balance, autonomy, sustainable focus, kind people

    Cons

    horrible pay, poor inclusion and communication across departments, silos, little room for growth, no structured employee development activities

    Advice to Management

    introduce more recognition and rewards for low to mid level employees to stop the high turnover at this level, restructure your Mentor program- it really does not accomplish successful onboarding

    Pros

    Full control, incredible experience, real-job/MBA level work

    You work with students, so its a inexperienced culture all around. You also deal with University bureaucracy

    Advice to Management

    Pay more to recruit top-notch students (that would otherwise go to Deloitte internship, etc)

    Pros

    The best thing about working at Loyola is the community. The people here are the best. I cannot stress this enough. There's also great work/life balance here, and the benefits are outstanding.

    Cons

    The pay could be better, and the leadership could be more open and decisive. Also wish there were more opportunities for career advancement.
