    I have been working at Marywood University full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Pay is reasonable based on cost of living, generally nice employees and students, good benefits. People try to be helpful in any way they can and genuinely care. Discount on meals in the dining hall (which is a good deal and there's a good variety). Free gym membership on campus.

    Cons

    Long hours (little work-life balance), politics (then again, it is academia, so it's to be expected). Communication issues between some people and sometimes it's difficult to know about protocol because it might not be stated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sort out internal issues and improve overall communication.

    I worked at Marywood University

    Pros

    100% tuition paid for employees & their kids

    Cons

    Most people just work for the free tuition and then quit once they finish school or their kids graduate. (Note that free tuition does not include the exhorbitant fees and book costs.) Pay is about 1/3 less than elsewhere. When I left, there was a lot of talk about staff reductions and people were being let go seemingly at random. Employees afraid to say anything -- even offer positive ideas -- because of the threat of job loss. Way to get ahead is to befriend someone in management so you are "protected." Management does not communicate with employees; major changes often happen suddenly and staff is expected to adapt with little or no notice, training, or guidance. General atmosphere of fear and repression keeps university from truly growing or providing quality education.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No need for advice, as no one would listen.

    I have been working at Marywood University

    Pros

    Marywood is a great place to work, but the salary is low in comparision to other comparable universities. Good people, Scranton is great!

    Cons

    The biggest con is the salary. the poeple are great, the staff is accomadating, but you are given a great deal of responsbility and not compensated for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    none
