    Pros

    Molloy feels like a small town, and most staff are extraordinarily friendly. The Catholic-affiliated campus treats religion positively, is open to prayer, but doesn't exclude other believers (unlike what other reviewer wrote). In fact, a full-time colleague practiced the Orthodox Jewish faith, and she never mentioned any issue. The college is only Catholic-affiliated, and barely noticeable as faith-based, compared to other Catholic colleges.

    Cons

    A handful of staff are just watching the clock and don't have a positive attitude. Some departments are heavy on hiring part-time to save money. It seems like some departments are given budgets for fluff, while others are relegated to sub-standard offices. Many departmental offices are in states of ill-repair.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more full-time employees and do away with extravagances of constant merchandise giveaways for students.

    Pros

    Employees are nice in general as are coworkers. Generous time off, and tuition remission, nice overall campus except for main (Kellenberg) building that needs renovation.

    Cons

    Molloy need to spend the money to automate processes in all administrative departments, increase pay scale, create grades for positions.

    Advice to Management

    Bring your department heads who have been with Molloy 20+ years up to speed on their job skills. Stop hiring relatives.

    Pros

    Pleasant environment Dedicated nursing students Energetic atmosphere with bustling student body Easy commuting experience for locaks Growing campus with new services and facilities

    Cons

    Adjunct pay low with no benefits or job security Campus shuts down at the first hint of snow causing disruptions to future scheduling

    Advice to Management

    Value your adjuncts by increasing pay dramatically and offering benefits and job security, especially to long timers who have proven loyal and competent in maximizing student retention

    Pros

    Friendly and motivated co-workers, good benefits. Well mannered students, though many are very sheltered, commuters

    Cons

    Not a very sophisticated environment, technology is outdated, parochial in thought, backward looking, micro-managers galore, often poor hiring choices particularly given the location outside NYC.

    Advice to Management

    To move forward you need to create an environment where motivated people are inspired - not crushed with parochialism.

    Pros

    Low traffic commute from most parts of Long Island and NYC.

    Cons

    Lots of relatives getting hired. No competition for vacancies, all they hire are employees spouses, and children. Wherever you go there's a mom and a daughter. Very hard to fire incompetent workers as a result of their personal relations. Not professional. Stay away.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring relatives. Get rid of the mom and daughter mindset. Do not hire employee's children including nieces and nephews, give external applicants a chance, stop the discrimination. Pay competitive salaries.

    Pros

    friendly staff, free parking, free dental insurance (only good for cleaning)

    Cons

    very low pay in comparison to other schools in the area, very religious, there's a prayer at the beginning of most meetings or events, not very inclusive of other faiths. too much gossip. all staff members are hourly rate, no staff gets a salary. ok benefits, dental is free, but massive co-pays.

    Advice to Management

    increase pay to administrators, some staff should be salaried. don't be too religious, community focus and some faith is fine. non-religious and other faiths feel left out.

    Pros

    Admin staff are very nice and friendly

    Cons

    very unorganized. Things are not made clear and told ahead of time so the temporary staff can prepare

    Pros

    The people are very nice and easy to work with.

    Cons

    The pay is less than you would get elsewhere. Everybody is related to someone else. Jobs don't hit the website before they are taken by someone's relative.

    Advice to Management

    Pay a bit more and don't waste money on shifting people from one temporary office to another. It adds up. Stop hiring relatives.
