    I worked at Stevenson University part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Stevenson is a great company to work for.

    Cons

    Stevenson should provide a review for all student employees about how the performance of their supervisors is. Also, there should be mandatory random urine analysis tests conducted for student employees as well. Saw many students either under the influence or high on the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Same as listed above in "cons."

    Pros

    Interested/interesting co-workers, beautiful campus, dedicated students/alumni

    Cons

    Small-school atmosphere is changing rapidly; expansion is a pro for employees, but negative for current students who came because of the small environment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on the students and the SU community, less effort on endless expansion

    I have been working at Stevenson University

    Pros

    Talent is recognized, and I have the freedom to accomplish my goals without interference. The fairly recent emphasis on wellness is a definite plus: we are offered free yoga classes and have access to the athletic facilties.

    Cons

    Fast growth can sometimes create communication obstacles. The dual campus environment can contribute to this challenge. Not everyone on the staff pays enough attention to email, though it is slowly getting better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to direct managers and the people on the front lines. You have done a great job of growing the university, but now the academic side of things should be given resources.

    I worked at Stevenson University

    Pros

    Small university with a very bright future. There are many positions that will be available in the future due to the growth at the university. There is good support for professional development and a wide latitude to be able to initiate your own ideas and programs.

    Cons

    Depends on the department. Certain VPs are not up to par in terms of understanding and experience, and can reverse decisions at their level and make you look bad without your input or consideration for your logic. I suppose this is no different than any employer, but it seems more prevalent here. Generally direct supervisors are high quality

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have confidence in your subordinates, they are quality people with quality experience

    I worked at Stevenson University

    Pros

    The faculty and staff really help you
    You have the opportunity to learn a lot about the school no matter what position you are in

    Cons

    They want you to do a lot of work for minimal pay
    Dont really treat all departments the same
    Dont focus on departments that are essential to the school

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the Little People at the University. Put your self in the employees situation before you ask them to to certain things
