    Great University. Dedicated staff.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsMarian University truly cares about its students. Its staff is highly dedicated and will go the extra mile to make students succeed. There is a sense of mission and pride that is prominent at Marian.

    ConsThe academic offerings are not as strong as it should be. There are not enough professors with terminal degrees. The small atmosphere at Marian might not be for every student.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to reach out to alumni and promote academic excellence.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Enjoy collegiality but be wary of constant leadership change.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Fond du Lac, WI

    ProsCaring professional colleagues. A true family atmosphere. Students who want to improve themselves and work to do so. Many first generation students who actively seek to become leaders.

    ConsLeadership changes too frequently - a stepping stone for presidents and advancement officers - which results in a new plan and adjustments to the new "vision" every few years or so. Becomes daunting to "train" these leaders to understand the mission and dynamics of the university.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAccept and value who the university is for - enhance but do not change who the university serves. Remember, there are throusands of colleges and universities out there - enjoy the value found in this particular school.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great colleagues make it a good place to work; mediocrity is too often rewarded; excellence rarely.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Fond du Lac, WI

    ProsFaculty and staff are approachable; genuine committment to students and improving their experience and learning. Flexibility in work hours and vacations.

    ConsTalks about excellence, innovation, and challenging students, but rewards loyalty, making cosmetic changes, and pleasing students.
    The constant turnover in upper management means more time is spent on reorganization after reorganization than on organizational development.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhen implementing change, consult the staff who will have to implement the changes to see if there are more cost effective and less personally disruptive ways to bring about same and/or better results.
