    Pros

    Great leave policies (work/life balance), campus events, diverse community, women leadership

    Cons

    Silo-ed departments mean resources don't always get put to best use, workloads can be heavy, training in the university's systems is sometimes lacking for getting simple tasks completed.

    Advice to Management

    Overall operational study is needed.

    Pros

    Beautiful campus, great mission, dedicated mid-level employees, School Sisters are excellent people…

    Cons

    If you want to feel bullied, set up to fail, micromanaged but not really managed, not listened to, and terrified of interacting with your boss, this is the place for you. The salary is low, as expected in this type of organization, but don't let them tell you that the culture makes up for it — it does not. It might if mid-level directorship didn't work so hard to sabotage progress and success, seemingly only to protect its own status quo/rear.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house in marketing, and find a way to listen to the boots on the ground without creating a human resources quagmire.

    Pros

    Student workers on campus are a boon to the campus and the student. There are a variety of options and hours are flexible. I worked in the career center and gained valuable administrative skills. It was convenient to work on campus. The pay was not high, but more than minimum wage. Overall, a good opportunity for a student to gain experience and extra money. Campus is in a great location.

    Cons

    The cons are very minor. The administrative at NDM is not well-organized and it occasionally causes problems or issues. Student workers, however, are only minimally effective by this dysfunction. Also, this is an impression from several years ago. The president of the university is new and things could be smoother.

    Wonderful opportunity to build resume.

    The university is still developing itself, often responsibilities blurred. Often staff get burnt out and do not last. Turn-over rate is high.

    Higher salaries.

    Pros

    Hmmm, beautiful campus, SSNDs are lovely people

    Cons

    Hierarchical! Though I've worked in corporate and private environments I have never worked somewhere that was less willing to include employees in decision making, and this is a place that touts inclusivity and decision sharing. The Enrollment and Development offices seem to foster and reward mediocrity; lowering the school’s standards for student acceptance, producing promotional materials that lack a clear position and are poorly executed, a web site that is riddled with misspellings and inaccuracies, and staff retention averaging one year. It's no wonder that enrollment continues to decline and that alumni giving is down.

    Advice to Management

    New President, Dr. Yam, needs to clean house.
