    Pros

    The schedule was great and summers were a more casual, which was a nice change. The students are polite and enthusiastic learners. The campus is aging and there are occasional maintenance issues like power or water outages.

    Cons

    Being Catholic is not a requirement for employment, but some staff treat non-Catholics rather rudely. My supervisor called me a heathen and sprinkled holy water on my desk and chair on a regular basis. Non-Catholic students often mentioned feeling ostracized.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage a welcoming environment for all students and staff who have chosen UD as a place to study or work. While compensation has understandably been frozen for some time, other means of showing staff appreciation would be nice - little things like an ice cream social, pizza party, or "jeans day" go a long way in letting staff know that their work doesn't go unnoticed.

    I have been working at University of Dallas part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I was given a lot of responsibility and my opinions were considered when changes needed to be made. I really enjoyed the experience

    Cons

    At times my direct supervisor was inefficient and did not respond to necessary changes. Outside of that the staff was friendly and I enjoyed my time with them.

    Advice to Management

    Respond to changes as they become necessary and be open to new ideas.

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    Most faculty and staff are committed to the mission and collegial. The students are smart and generally principled, good kids.

    Cons

    The senior leaders, HR and the finance areas are fraught with mismanagement, selfishness, and incompetence.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in new senior leaders who demonstrate genuine Catholic values in their decision-making and fiscal management.


  10. A great college to work for in higher education, and the students truly make your work worthwhile.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at University of Dallas full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have a confidence in the leadership structure of UD, and I've seen the school make great strides in the short time working here (about 2 and 1/2 years). There are holidays for major events (Easter, Thanksgiving, etc) and generally easy flexibility when requesting vacation time - especially during the summer. Training, at least within our office, is great and hands on learning. The work environment is highly enjoyable. Not only are my coworkers pleasant to work with, more often than not, working with other departments is a friendly experience. The school is definitely on an upward trend (new building for the Satish and Yasmin Gupta College of Business, new aesthetic updates, and positive leadership, to name a few things) and I would recommend getting on board!

    Cons

    Since the school is somewhat smaller than other universities your job responsibilities may sometimes extend beyond your primary, or even secondary, responsibilities. However, when you are tasked with those assignments you are usually recognized by your supervisor for your efforts. Some may view the compensation as lower than other universities within the area, I'd say the compensation is within range or close to par when compared to others.

    I have been working at University of Dallas part-time

    Pros

    Studying as a phd student is the major and not necessarily responsibilities as a TA

    Cons

    No work life balance, and compensation can be improved upon
