    Pros

    At a small school you have a lot of freedom to create programming. At Trine University it is easy to collaborate with faculty and staff members. They offer insight into their specific areas and are willing to help you. We have wonderful staff in our grounds and housekeeping departments that keep the university clean and well maintained. The people who set up for events are especially helpful and flexible when changes need to be made at the last minute.

    Cons

    There are not enough resources such as administrative help for many departments.

    Advice to Management

    People who work hard everyday but aren't in the most visible positions don't get thanked or appreciated enough.

    Pros

    I love learning and as a professor I am allowed to constantly learn and explore with my students. They pay me to do my favorite activity.

    Cons

    Long late hours and pay that is based on number of students.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to grow the facility.

    Pros

    Great staff and faculty. Everyone is full of energy and a desire to help others. The hours can be long but flexible. Working in higher education is a rewarding field. You get to help others realize their educational goals!

    Cons

    There is a 'git-er-done' attitude which can ultimately lead to long hours. Each campus is run with little to now leadership. The budgets are wired tight therefore there is little to no marketing dollars. Additionally, the lack of funds prevents the upper management from having the resources (including time) to visit campuses and provide support as needed.

    Advice to Management

    Trine University should provide more resources to the Dean. This will free up time for him/her to visit the campuses regularly and better understand the individual dynamics. Provide marketing ventures aside from the "word of mouth" and other free options.

    Pros

    Trine University has a great enviroment for improvement and a rewarding atmosphere. The University is held together by many wonderful people who all play a huge role in the whole experience. I would definitely work there again!!

    Cons

    Maybe pay could be considered a Con, but they make up for it with great benefits that go beyond a typical health, dental, 401K. Like Education for your whole household, games, events, and food discounts.

    Pros

    Wonderful benefits. Family receives free tuition. Wonderful and intelligent individuals to work with below upper management. The education give to students is of very good quality.

    Cons

    Little to no communication between upper management and other employees.

    Advice to Management

    Open the lines of communication between upper management and other employees. Be open and honest about upcoming changes instead of dumping them on employees without notice. Do not make promises that are not able to be met.
