    Great coworkers but very low pay

    Assistant Professor (Former Employee) Providence, RI

    ProsMy department was very supportive and people always had an open-door policy. It was not at all like some academic departments that are very political. I also felt like I had a lot of independence and creative freedom, while also getting the peer support I needed. Also, Providence is a great city and has one of the best dining scenes in the region, as well as proximity to Boston, Cape Cod, and NYC.

    ConsThe starting salary was extremely low. There was some support for research and professional development, but as a whole this was very minimal and certainly below what would be expected for an institution this large. There are some great students at RIC, but there also a lot who are not prepared for college, which can make the job more challenging.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDevelop greater funding mechanisms to support faculty development and research.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Perks of being a Graduate Student

    Graduate Assistant (Current Employee) Providence, RI

    ProsThe staff and faculty of RIC are a very freindly group of professionals. Hoursly wages for grad aides are OK at $12. Or, as a grad assistant you can have your tuition waived. Great and respectful working environment in a convenient location!

    ConsThere are other, higher-profile graduate schools where being a grad assistant means waived in addition to a generous stipend - RIC simply cannot afford that.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSeek funding to improve grad student benefits. Perhaps for a graduate union, like URI.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
