    I worked at University of Dallas full-time

    Pros

    My colleagues were great to work with, supportive, professional and fun. Tuition benefits are great.

    Cons

    work-life balance was good, very little training opportunities provided through the University unless one of the academic programs works for you. Virtually no possibility of career growth.

    I have been working at University of Dallas full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some autonomy, the students have been a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    Very disorganized in multiple departments and at all levels. Incompetency runs rapid in most departments and at all levels. Total lack of leadership from top to bottom, especially when it comes to servant leadership skills. Pay is almost insulting, especially when doing a great job and improving your department. I would strongly suggest not even applying for a job within this organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask your employees how you can help them be successful and then try to make it happen of them.

    I have been working at University of Dallas full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Some employees are really passionate about their job.

    Cons

    Small university..everybody knows everyone. Hard to move to other departments without your current supervisor being warned. Very low pay for the work load. Management promotes unqualified candidates from within to save money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase pay and hire the most qualified candidates

    I worked at University of Dallas

    Pros

    the interns make you want to do your best and show them how management should treat them. the free 6 credit hours per semester as a bonus.

    Cons

    high turn-over and the wrong people are hired for important positions that lack qualifications needed to do the jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be more positive and encouraging and never take your own frustrations out or bad mouth your employees.
