    Pretty Good - Could Be Better

    Student Life Director (Current Employee)
    Moon Township, PA

    ProsMost employees and students are wonderful. Benefits are pretty good. Lots of comp time and a very fun low-key atmosphere during breaks.

    ConsVice Presidents make all the critical decisions with only superficial understanding of what their staff does. Some decisions are obviously tied to VP bonuses. Pay is about 20% below market average. Everyone has been at RMU for 2 years or 20 years. Anyone with ambition is gone after 2-3 years because pay stinks and the never-leavers block opportunities for promotion.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAsk for more than bullet point updates and truly learn about what your staff does. Pay people market average salary.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Excellent staff/ Decent pay

    Admissions Counselor (Current Employee)
    Pittsburgh, PA

    ProsRMU has excellent staff members who make you feel welcomed and they definitely work as a team! There is no micro managing, and although there are goals you definitely don't have to worry about missing your numbers and losing your job. Instead of blaming the employee RMU takes a look at other outside factors that play a role in student enrollment. You are practically in charge of yourself and they offer excellent benefits and great PTO days. This is the type of job you can stay at, it is a career.

    ConsNo cons so far, they are on the right track as far as student success and employee happiness!

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management listens to any issues and try to correct them as best as they can!

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

    Great environment, great people, great management, horrible pay

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsVery forward thinking managers and VPs.
    Warm environment
    Modern work facilities and beautiful campus
    Strong job security
    Mangers seem to appreciate the feedback given by their subordinates
    The on-site food court/dining facilities are excellent
    The surrounding town has everything you might want/need (from grocery stores and restaurants to tanning and golf courses)

    ConsPay is well below national averages for just about every position and the annual raises are somewhat laughable (1%-5%)

    Overall great place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsRobert Morris University has been on an upward trend since Dr. Dell'Omos tenure began. The University is seeing enormous growth and the people who work here are great. Its commitment to its core values is always very apparent in the classrooms and in the workplace.

    ConsRMU provides slightly lower salaries than other institutions in the area. Its enormous growth has resulted, sort of counterintuitively, in budget cuts across the board. As RMU continues to grow it needs to figure out how to more effectively distribute its income in order to remain competitive in the areas of employee salaries and satisfaction.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAs RMU continues to grow, its salaries need to remain highly competitive to continue to attract great people.

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