    I have been working at Queens University of Charlotte

    Pros

    Supervisor does not micromanage. Gives you opportunity to lead yourself.

    Cons

    Pay isn't that great. Higher authority could take initiative to learn more about staff.

    I worked at Queens University of Charlotte full-time

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule and "educator holiday" lifestyle. Free education.

    Cons

    Little room for growth, below industry standard for pay and benefits (very expensive for a family), limited resources and substandard budget. Poverty wage unless you are a faculty member / administrator. Negative and non-affirming personnel and leaders in numerous departments. Low moral due to economic restraints. $ goes to faciliities, but not for employee growth, retention, and student engagement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build and affirm your team. Train and promote from within. Move some of the building fund to build and reward the staff - a 1% raise one time in four years is not affirming! Dismiss those who have negative, toxic attitudes. Stop and define the goal... disjointed majors and programs that come and go do not help define the school at the undergraduate or graduate level. More concerned w. parking fees than building and promoting the health and growth of the team and student body. Stop w. what "sounds good" and do good.

    I worked at Queens University of Charlotte part-time

    Pros

    Employee training and development, personal growth, schedule flexibility, amazing supervisors and positive culture. Also, being a student employee that works alongside other students allows for a stronger connection to the student body.

    Cons

    There is room for improvement when it comes to salary. Student employees do not have much to lose when working for the university.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Queens University of Charlotte full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some of the people that work there make it possible to tolerate the job, but most of them are seeking employment elsewhere. But watch out for the career climbers, they have been ask to spy and tell. You know the ones that don't do their job and put it off on you but claim the credit for it.

    Cons

    Work you to death, no raises, always poor mouthing, Hire you and change job description adding more work that you shouldn't be doing. Give you vacation and holidays but won't let you take them because always understaffed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate your employees, they are the ones who make "you" look like you know what your doing!

    I worked at Queens University of Charlotte full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very nice people and usually relaxed atmosphere. Beautiful campus and old buildings.

    Cons

    No type of real rules and what there are (employee handbook) is not followed consistently. Way too much politics between departments and no consistent guidance from above.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to instill in staff and faculty that Queens is one entity and not a bunch of disjointed schools. Need to define procedures and then follow them at all levels.

    I have been working at Queens University of Charlotte

    Pros

    Great benefits, everyone who works here is respectful and nice, the students are not as demanding or needy as other places I've worked. Beautiful campus in ritzy part of Charlotte. Tuition is free if you want to pursue graduate degree (or undergraduate if you do not have one already)

    Cons

    Like all places of higher ed, no bonuses and very small salary increases every year. You must change jobs to get paid more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doing a great job, love the daily staff newsletters that keep us informed of everything that is going on campus--great transparency

    I worked at Queens University of Charlotte

    Pros

    The Queens campus is beautiful and most of the faculty are intelligent and committed.

    Cons

    Administration is almost unbelievably disorganized. As with most educational institutions, change is slow but ,unlike most educational institutions, change is sorely needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    LET GO. Let go of what does not work. Develop a system that makes sense.
