    I have been working at Saint Peter's University part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Small classes, great people, happy atmosphere, strong brand name, good sports teams, great scholarships. We get great support from the entire SPU community. Excellent community service ideas.

    Cons

    There are not too many cons to discuss. Possibly the fact that it's in Jersey City in one of the less glamorous areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more selective in accepting students

    I worked at Saint Peter's University

    Pros

    The employees are wonderful, caring individuals both to each other and the population the organization serves - the students. The majority truly believe in the mission of the institution.

    Cons

    There are far too many committees to make simple decisions. This was probably a result of no one person wanting to take responsibilty for any decision. If something fails, one could always fallback on the excuse "the committee decided". The excessive use of committees just slows everything down and is a time waster.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Assign individuals to complete tasks or make decisions rather than an entire group. This will also be a tool to seperate the poor decision makers from the superstars.

    I have been working at Saint Peter's University

    Pros

    The staff I worked with on a daily basis were extremely dedicated, cared about the students they served and were willing to perform duties outside of their job descriptions.

    Cons

    The executives and senior administrators had no idea what duties were performed by each employee and had very little input or contact. Employees in almost every area were paid far less than their peers at similar institutions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize the quality employees before they leave for "greener pastures". Rely less on Adjunct Professors and make effort to attract more qualified students.

    Pay is too low for specific jobs and management overlooks hard work.

    Pros

    Very accomodating with work hours.

    Cons

    Low level employees are not recognized for their hard work and dedication even after being employed by the college for over a decade.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize employees and raise the pay.
