    I have been working at Mount St. Mary's College part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Laid-back environment. All of the student staff are very friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    Some of the offices have rude employees. The college prides themselves on helping women succeed by providing many options of study but there is not an equal amount of resources in all of the departments. (neglected art majors: FILM, art, theater, music)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees, especially student employees with respect. They are paid minimum wage and are juggling classes so do not ask too much of them. After all, they do the same work that others are doing who receive above minimum wage.

    I have been working at Mount St. Mary's College part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    You ideas as an employee stand out. As a part time employee I did feel that my ideas were valued, the people that I work with are wonderful, the environment is friendly and in general most people are willing to help you with any questions that you might encounter.

    Cons

    Since this is a very small institution you have to work with limited resources. It's challenging to work in an environment in which your customers are students.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Utilize each an every employee's talents to the institutions advantage. I believe this can only better this institution.

    I have been working at Mount St. Mary's College full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Awesome retirement
    good benefits
    good people all around
    beautiful campuses
    good mission
    Tuition Waiver

    Cons

    some people just need to retire
    needs to be more open to change

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The college is going to struggle with the strategic goals of the college unless you change how people view CHANGE.
    Everyone is very satisfied with doing the minimum of their job and not trying to improve broken policies and procedures. If department silos are broken down, and people work with each other on a better level...there really is nothing stopping where this college can go.

    I worked at Mount St. Mary's College as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The students are wonderful people, engaged, kind, and generally speaking, hard working.

    Cons

    The administration uses its students, especially its adult students as cash cows without any care for the quality of their education. My former supervisor discriminated against working mothers. Not just my experience in this arena. The school's also so afraid of litigation that they allow plagiarism to run rampant. It's awful and the faculty, especially the part-timers, have no recourse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid of doing the right thing even if it means ruffling a few feathers. Fire or demote supervisors who are causing problems. Discipline students who cheat. Pay faculty, especially part-timers more and stop hiring people the week before the semester.
