  6. A business oriented school that is in the midst of several major developments.

    I worked at Robert Morris University - Pennsylvania

    Pros

    Robert Morris University has a beautiful campus, a dedicated faculty, and a diverse student body. It is constantly changing and growing.

    Cons

    As it grows and develops, there are the inevitable pains and missteps. Regardless, though, there is a vision for the future and it is being pursued doggedly.

  7. Student Life Pay is TERRIBLE

    I have been working at Robert Morris University - Pennsylvania full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Coworkers truly care about students.

    Cons

    Too many people who have never worked at another college. Too many people who don't have a background in Student Life/Student Affairs. RMU pays faculty with a master's degree and zero experience $45,000 to teach 8 classes a year. RMU pays Student Life staff $32,000 to work 40-50 hours a week all year round with no better than 1.5% raises. VPs and Deans make bonuses more than what rank and file make in a year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the salaries of your rank and file employees before a union comes in and wrecks your cushy model.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Vice 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 ManagementAdvice

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