    I have been working at St. Edward's full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very, very friendly community as a whole
    Numerous services on campus, ie post office, gym, dining, coffee, etc
    Admin has a great vision and are qualified
    Benefits, such as tuition
    10 hours a month pto plus sick, etc. holiday time off is great!
    Values, mission

    Cons

    Management is becoming more demanding while resources stretched thin
    Pay to park at your job
    Change that outpaces employee capacity and cultural resistance to change, while demanding continual and growing high level of expectations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can get more accomplished by sticking to operating principles, such as treating each other with respect, working collaboratively, etc.
