    Great place to work, low key and lots of things to do in the area.

    I have been working at Merrimack College part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Nice people, beautiful campus, supportive administration, nice students. Students are hard workers and the people who work with you are eager to help when you need it.

    Cons

    Not too close to Boston. Not a particularly diverse group of students, if that is what you are looking for. Very traditional Catholic campus, which could be either a pro or a con, depending upon how you look at it. Campus is growing faster than they are posting jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more positions

    I worked at Merrimack College part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I found the fellow staff members to be friendly, particularly the department secretary; I enjoyed the students

    Cons

    Low, low pay for time put in; very little guidance from above, as the main issue I had teaching (I assigned too much reading) was one of the specific points I asked the department chair when preparing my syllabus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train chairs on how to mentor adjuncts, for which I feel I received zip

    Pros

    When working at the McQuade Library the pros were the hours, atmosphere and location.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges working here were non existent, unless you worked the night shift which means stocking books.

    Small nice people where everyone knows everyone. Very good benefits and paid time off
    College is growing and many improvements. Great executive management

    Cons

    Not much promotion from within. No clarity with job grades

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow current employees to apply for jobs before posting. Give position grades so employees know if job is a promotion.

    Pros

    The work environment is very friendly and also you get to know very important people and how to deal with them.

    Sometimes the hours are very extensive and employees can get fed up with one another during events where they need to be relaxed.

    OK place to work if you just need a job

    I worked at Merrimack College

    Pros

    It's a close-knit, community atmosphere, good location and comparable benefits. Some departments run very well, which helps others run well.

    Cons

    If you are not in the 'In crowd', you will never be promoted or given more than your alloted 3% raise. If you are fine just having a job and don't have much ambition, this is a good place to be a lifer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize and properly compensate the talent you have, before it leaves. Diversify the staff and student population without looking like you're just meeting a quota.
