    Pros

    Love the people and the students

    Cons

    Commuting downtown is difficult and expensive.

    Advice to Management

    Higher salaries and a decent raise. Costs have increased but our salaries have not. Staff and faculty who commute to NYC should receive travel stipends - it costs more to work in the City than in Pleasantville.

    Pros

    A great place if you like a challenge. Can make a difference in young people's lives with people who care. Can earn up to 5 weeks vacation, plus holidays, plus personal days, plus 8 hours release time for community service for full time staff. Break on tuition for you, spouse or dependents (undergraduate and graduate).

    Cons

    Pays less than other sectors Disparities between lower and and upper administrative/faculty salaries (but hey isn't that everywhere?) Is diverse, but could be more diverse.

    Pros

    Adjuncts can be more involved in the University than at other colleges. Faculty and staff and even administrators can be very welcoming and interested in collaborating. The University has many excellent resources available to adjuncts, including workshops, conferences and cultural events.

    Cons

    An adjunct is an adjunct is an adjunct. No job security, minimal benefits. Can't survive on adjunct pay here or anywhere. Doesn't really move career forward as there is no pay for research/writing.

    Advice to Management

    Improve working conditions for adjuncts with increased job security and benefits. Pay increases need to stay on par with rates at other private and public schools in NYC such as NYU and CUNY. Paperwork needs to enter the 21st century. Communication needs improvement.

    Pros

    Great mission, committed faculty and staff, and strong leadership. Lots of positive things happening at this university on the rise, including enrollment growth, more donations, and great outcomes for students.

    Cons

    Nothing that is unique to higher education, but Pace seems to be faring well despite the current pressures in the field.
