    Professors, deans, co-workers were great; management horrible.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Proslocation:close to home, short commute

    Small Institute, Small Mind and the retro of the 70s

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Winchester, VA

    ProsNot for profits, stable and slow to changes college in a valley. Enjoy small communities only 2 hours drive to Washington D.C metropolitan.

    ConsHead heavy organization with titles everywhere. Difficult to maneuvre and bring changes to this organization. Abusive management is allowed due to silo culture.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCut down management positions that are not productive. Recruit, promote and drive quality incentive to employee at operational level. Apply 360 degree staff performance matrix.

    Excellent colleagues, average pay

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsMy colleagues are beyond a doubt the best part of working at SU. They are fantastic people and excellent at their jobs. Administration is helpful and efficient (for the most part) and I have had minimal negative experiences.

    ConsThe students are good people (with few exceptions), but I was constantly surprised by how little common sense and study skills they had. It made actually teaching my subject area difficult when I had to focus so much of my time on basic tasks like how to read a syllabus and what a complete sentence is. Students expect a lot of handholding, and that's not why I got into the profession. If I wanted to teach high school I would have skipped all that extra time in graduate school.

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