    I worked at Salve Regina University as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Everyone is very friendly and interested in the students and each other. Great location. The school plans a lot of events that are fun to attend. Coworkers were always ready to assist me when necessary.

    Cons

    None, really. I guess one thing would be that, as a college, you sometimes have to work non-traditional hours, but you know what you are getting when you sign up for the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.

    I have been working at Salve Regina University

    Pros

    Beautiful campus, great students, some good benefits such as free tuition to full-time employees, health care.

    Cons

    Very low pay, moral at an all time low. Some in upper management don't have the skills necessary for their position. Not the friendly place it once was, very sad to see this happen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Highest management, CEO level, needs to be aware that there is great disappointment with a few at the next level down.

    Politics are tough. School is really run by the accountants. Lots of employee turnover.

    I have been working at Salve Regina University

    Pros

    Beautiful location in Newport, RI next to the cliff walk. Stunning buildings (I work in a guilded age mansion). Most people are really nice--especially faculty and students.

    Cons

    My supervisor is a micromanager and is never pleased with my work. Also has a bad attitude, abusive to me and my coworkers. Brought it up to upper management and HR, who refuses to do anything about it. If you've been working here for 10+ years, they'll let you do whatever you want. Politics inside the university is particularly complicated. If you want to work here, be prepared for dealing with loads of red tape to get anything done. Pay is not great--be prepared to get 10-25% less than what you would be paid at another school.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your employees. You take care of yourselves, but you need to remember us (remember the whole retirement debacle...you know, when you suspended payments into our retirements, yet continued the payments for all the VP's?). Don't promote people who don't know what they are doing into supervisory positions. Learn how to be nice.
