    Salem State in some regards is a great place to work.

    Adjunct Faculty (Current Employee)

    ProsStudents for the most part are hard-working individuals, who are juggling work and school. Inspiring them to finish their degrees and work hard was the best part of the job.

    ConsLow salaries except for top administrators. Not a great place to be an adjunct faculty member. Salary is ridiculously low for required skills and education.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay your faculty better!

    Fun place to work

    Office Assistant (Current Employee) Salem, MA

    ProsA very good , secure way to start working and gain some professional experience before you get exposed to outside world.
    You will feel more comfortable to work in an environment where you will be treated as one of them and will consider even if you do some mistake( not the blunder ofcourse!!!)

    ConsThe only cons I see is the limited hours for international students.
