    I worked at University of New Hampshire full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Real sweet little town, feel of the office is different place to place, there are a couple of places I shouldn't want to be but overall can't be beat as a place to work.

    Cons

    It feels as if maybe things are getting a little tight, I think they know the state is giving them no more money and the demographic is working against them also...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have some reverence for history and don't throw people away.

    I worked at University of New Hampshire full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are good, especially if you are interested in taking classes there. Vacation time is generous, but fitting it into your schedule is difficult. Most departments offer flexible schedules to meet the needs of the students, while others run on times that are most convenient for the staff.

    Cons

    The national reputation of SNHU becoming a diploma mill is unfortunate, but true. The online side runs like a for-profit and is all metrics-driven. The academic advising role is really a re-enrollment role.
    Many long-term, dedicated employees are let go and it isn't until you seek them out that you are informed they are no longer employed. Whether you are there 1 year or 35, you could be gone at a moment's notice so only put in your office/cube what you can pack up in a single box.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The culture is lost.

    Former Employee - Tutor in Durham, NH

    I worked at University of New Hampshire part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The environment at the Math Center is just like family; fellow students meet weekly for recreational card games or other activities. The supervisors are very supportive and helpful, doing whatever it takes to make you feel comfortable in your role as tutor.

    Cons

    Some students can be particularly difficult to work with, however, these cases are few and far between. There is a steep learning curve, but after one semester, things become more comfortable.

    UNH Manchester campus...Could be worse--but don't waste your time if you're looking for career growth.

    I worked at University of New Hampshire part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Had good benefits but not any longer--that was only benefit of position besides great students and faculty
    Fringe benefits great at main campus, lousy at Manchester
    Students are great
    Some management are great (but stuck in a bad system)

    Cons

    Low pay to those who work hardest and very little effective staff support ; HR is more a tattle tail than a supporter of conflict. Can't share anything with them or try to inquire about possible outcomes because they "tell" and the boss calls you in to say "I heard". It's a disgrace.
    Benefits no longer good
    Falsified reviews --supervisors change what you write and you can't tell anyone because they are all in friendship with each other. Very very clicky
    Some management and directors have it a bit too cushy...chatting with family all day, on computer all day, not doing work and being a team-player

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the clicks with HR--other companies I worked for did not allow HR staff to head up clicks. Reward your staff more appropriately rather then having them wait 10 years to win 'employee of the year' and commit to all your people, not just a few. Focus is all on students and faculty, staff get used and compensated poorly for keeping the school afloat. Without the loyal staff you have, you wouldn't have a salary for your faculty or administrators. You wouldn't have any students. Drop the ego and absorb some appreciation. Stop looking down at your PEERS who don't hold a PH.D to work in administration and give them a chance to prove themselves as career minded and focused employees capable of taking on a promotion once in a while. NO PROMOTIONS for ANYONE? Go anyplace else, you get promoted within a few years with a great review and receive great training. OFFER RELEVANT TRAINING FOR YOUR EMPLOYEES. All training is student focused, not employee focused.
