  1. Very positive experience so far!

    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.

    Pros

    A great sense of autonomy in your work; you are never micromanaged. Sometimes that can play to the extremes... at times you can feel like you have no direction, others you have a perfectly clear idea of what goals you are working toward. Benefits are on par with other institutions. There are so many colleagues at Queens who really love the institution, and it shows when you walk on campus. The culture at Queens is tangible: the staff who constantly work with students understand who we are there to serve.

    Cons

    Upper administration is very disconnected. Many VPs need me to wear my nematic in order to know my first name. Pay is not competitive. Typical with the field, you feel overworked and underpaid at times, but immediate supervisors recognize that and really encourage work-life balance (which doesn't exist). The salary gap between entry-level positions and even mid-level staff is sickening. For a smaller university, it seems very compartmentalized when it doesn't need to be. It can seem that upper administration is more concerned with cultivating donations and updating buildings in order to recruit future students than truly providing for the students that we have now. As a staff member, it can seem like you do not have a voice about crucial matters until a band of students speak up.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your "front-line" staff. Be open about salaries. Care about current students.

    Pros

    Great holidays, time off, flexibility depends on manager so don't count on it. Beautiful campus.

    Cons

    Senior management is clueless. Employees are treated like dirt and pay is way under market. High turnover. Job duties change constantly.

    Advice to Management

    Be self aware of what is happening in your divisions. Value employees to stop the revolving door. Implement the values you preach.

    Pros

    Beautiful campus, nice community areas, good location, visually appealing, donors love to give money for buildings, weekly faculty/staff gathering, respected within community.

    Cons

    Nonexistent advancement opportunities, salary not competitive, lack of training opportunities, technology subpar, questionable safety and security, management reactive instead of proactive.

    Advice to Management

    Not only recognize valuable employees but create and implement a plan to retain them. Invest in employees and pay less attention to superficial issues.

    Pros

    Love the time off during holidays, very flexible work schedule, beautiful campus, nice people

    Cons

    Administration is unbelievably disorganized, accountability is not valued, many employees have gone rogue

    Advice to Management

    Know what your staff is (or is not) doing. There are A LOT of disorganized people who are negatively impacting the student experience.

    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

    Benefits.

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

    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.
