Overall, working at Ramapo has been beneficial to my life and career

Adjunct Professor (Current Employee)
Mahwah, NJ

I have been working at Ramapo College of New Jersey as a contractor for more than a year

ProsVery collegial place to work. Faculty are awesome and staff are generally happy.
Small campus, beautiful landscape, walkable.
Good opportunities for professional development.
Some appealing benefits like pensions with matching contributions.
The college has a commitment to sustainability through energy use policies and activities.

ConsThe administration is at odds with the faculty as they attempt to expand the college. The work climate is changing and the next few years will determine whether it remains a great place to work, gets over the hurdle and is a thriving, dynamic place, or becomes one of those it's just work institutions.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

This is why we need Chris Christie!!!

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Mahwah, NJ

I worked at Ramapo College of New Jersey full-time for more than 3 years

Prosonly a 35 hour woorkweek and that is full-time. generous time off and great NJ state benefits

Conslazy lazy people. complain, union crazy... have super benefits and only a thirty five hour work week and still complain! no wonder NJ is broke! Christie needs to do something about these pensionistas that just hang out waitng for retirement. i worked with someone who did nothing and they couldn't get rid of her....ridiculous!

Advice to Senior Managementprivitize at least hr function. there needs to be a system in place so that unproductive people are removed and replaced with productive ones.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
