    I worked at Marian University full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Marian 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.

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Continue to reach out to alumni and promote academic excellence.

    I worked at Marian University full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Caring 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.

    Cons

    Leadership 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 ManagementAdvice

    Accept 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.

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

    I worked at Marian University

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Talks 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 ManagementAdvice

    When 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.
