    Pros

    Generally UNE has pretty good benefits. It was nice to have workout facilities onsite. Lots of good coworkers with decent energy.

    Cons

    They do very little to address poor management issues. They were constantly restructuring. Salary not competitive to private sector.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are key to the university success. All the reshuffling was tedious. Need to be more student focused.

    I have been working at University of New England full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    For the most part you get a pretty flexible work schedule. The benefits used to be stellar but are still better than most places. The campuses are very well taken care of and beautiful in the summer. Regular cost of living raise.

    Cons

    If you can get an interview (4-6 months) and you make it to the final round you will almost certainly hear something along the lines of "room for advancement" or "ability to grow". This is pretty much a bold faced lie. Most of the upper management is just out to lunch or looking out for their own interests, when it comes to the people who grind it out everyday they couldn't seem to care less. There is no way to advance, promotions are reserved for those who brown-nose constantly. Be prepared that the job you get is the job you will have until you leave.

    Advice to Management

    There is no point in offering advice because the management is going to do whatever the heck it wants.

    Pros

    Great benefits, nice work environment, great co-workers

    Cons

    Salary doesn't keep up with current salaries at other institutions. Heavy turnover in upper management. Expectation that everyone wants to work 60 hours per week.

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking everyone wants to work 60 hours per week. When a new person is hired, or someone is promoted, make the expectations clear and provide training.

    I have been working at University of New England full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Supportive leadership. Dynamic and useful academic programs for students. Encourages and promotes learning opportunities for faculty and staff. Not always focused on "just sit down and work"- annual fall assembly with President Ripich, various expos, health and wellness initiatives such as an annual 1-2 mile Fun Run/Walk. Family environment. Management acknowledges hard work. Encourages team unity. BEAUTIFUL campus on the ocean (and Portland has several historic buildings).

    Cons

    Having to work in the summer when the ocean looks so beautiful from our offices. :)

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the hard work! We are here to support you!

    Pros

    The University of New England Biddeford Campus is located on the coast of southern Maine. I love coming to work to take in the scenic ocean views. I have been an employee for 7 years and enjoy the friendly atmosphere and welcoming. I also appreciate our comprehensive and competitive benefit's package. The University is very progressive and fast paced which allows its employees an opportunity to be creative within their professional role. Their new athletic center - Alfond Forum is spectacular. Great to have our own ice!

    Cons

    The parking situation on both campuses is a huge annoyance but something we deal with.

    Advice to Management

    I believe that the senior management should communicate more frequently to the employees on the progress that they are making and changes that may occur.
