    I worked at Marymount Manhattan full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    MMC is a nice small-knit community. Friendly staff members, budding students and nice building. Good HR department as well as cafeteria. In regards to my office, most of the people were supportive and efficient.

    Cons

    Management was very poor. My supervisor micromanaged and spoke poorly to their respective staff in almost a inhumane way. Nothing was done about that. Communication across the various offices and departments was very weak. Not much room for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be aware of how you speak to your employees. Leadership does not always mean speaking down to people and telling them what to do. Trust that the training provided has set a path for the position.

    Pros

    Wonderful staff and coworkers who make best with the little they have.

    Cons

    Administration does not care about their staff quality of living or wages.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees the cost of living wage to half way survive in New York City.

    I have been working at Marymount Manhattan full-time

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers, Fridays off in summers, week off between Christmas and New Years, generous with vacation and personal days, 10% retirement contribution without required match after one year

    Cons

    No merit based raises and standard raises below inflation. Management don't seem to care about staff. There have been efforts to reduce benefits and eliminate raises all together which is causing the best staff to leave. Things have been getting worse and worse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees and try to keep your best staff instead of cost cutting. The staff all want to do everything they can to help students and wish the administration cared about them even a fraction as much.

    Former Employee - Administrative Assistant to Vice-President in New York, NY

    I worked at Marymount Manhattan full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great location, regular hours, non-supervisory staff is often good young folks, vibrant atmosphere.

    Cons

    Departments have little communication with each other. You could easy work there for a year and not know anybody outside your office.
    Some departments often feel very disconnected from the students - which is what the school is about.
    Because the school is so small its easy to forget its actually a college.
    Too often complaints that alumni that they were treated as walking dollar bills not people.
    Too much micromanaging my supervisors leading to high turn-over, disgruntled employees, not listening to employees, inability to change with circumstances and a lot of back-stabbing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on people not just ideas tossed around the Board of Trustees meetings

    I have been working at Marymount Manhattan full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great location on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Motivated and talented students. Free access to all theatre productions. Small size school.

    Cons

    Not a lot of collaboration/communication between departments. Sometimes it seems that leadership is a bit confused.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes it seems that management is constantly just putting band-aids on the issues instead of trying to get to the root of it and fix it once and for all.

    I have been working at Marymount Manhattan

    Pros

    I have more decision-making power than I've ever had at any job. The benefits are good; the time off is very good, particularly with Summer Fridays. It's so small, you get to know fellow employees very quickly, which can be beneficial in doing your job.

    Cons

    Most of the faculty are so narcissistic, they make it difficult to work with them. Although this is true for most colleges, MM feels like it's the worst. It's a predominantly white school both in students and employees and there doesn't seem to be an interest in changing that except for a few people. There are some customer service problems years old and still don't get fixed.

    Pros

    During the summer, you get Fridays off.

    Cons

    There was a lot of micromanaging from management but the staff was enjoyable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice if hard work was rewarded. The work environment seemed overbearing at times.
