    I worked at Notre Dame part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment, freedom to explore new ideas, reasonable pay, friendly people and work environment, beautiful campus

    Cons

    Sometimes getting funding for certain projects can be difficult. Jobs are very dependent on your boss and how quickly they want something done. Mine was relaxed, but yours may be different.

    I have been working at Notre Dame full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Educational benefit for employees children is one of the best. Full health care coverage with different levels of payment options available. Decent vacation structure depending on your status (exempt vs non-exempt)
    Campus atmosphere like no other, students, staff and faculty are very friendly.
    Learning at work degree program for staff eligible.
    Faculty & Staff eligible to purchase season tickets to all sports (limit of 2 seats)

    Cons

    What was once a family-first institution is now run more like a business. Raises are pitiful (usually 3% or less). Benefit costs rise yearly while perks are phased out. When the season ticket option for staff & faculty was initially offered it was in lieu of a yearly raise, cost was low enough that even hourly people could afford to purchase them. The campus needed more money so the discount afforded to staff & faculty was removed (20%) in what is being seen by those affected as a way to get staff & faculty to quit buying them. Cost now is over $1000 a season which for most is too exorbitant.
    Hourly wages are meager thus if you have children and need day-care you are working just to pay insurance and day-care costs, you'll need a second job to make it.
    As people retire, there is a reluctance to replace them but the buildings continue to be built and the work continues to double and everyone is expected to get the work done with the resources available
    Tuition reimbursement for employees is below par

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start focusing on the people who work for you. Not just the faculty, but the people on the ground who get the jobs done. It used to be that when you told someone you worked at Notre Dame you felt proud, because it was so hard to get a job there. Turn-over was nill, you had to either retire or get fired to have an opening.

    I worked at Notre Dame part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Students are intelligent and motivated. Academic achievement is highly valued. Collegial work environment. Everyone is happy to be there. Great opportunities to show initiative and participate in projects outside of specific job function. World-class speakers visit campus every day as well as other cultural, artistic, and scholarly events.

    Cons

    Very bureaucratic and protective of the school's brand and reputation. Weather sucks. Pay for adjunct faculty is pretty low and they are treated like second-class citizens. Non-academic initiatives are given lower priority, regardless of benefit to students.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The perceived status of the Development Office, that it is seen as the top priority on campus, is very embarrassing and hurts staff and faculty morale.
