    I worked at University of Richmond as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Ambitious faculty, both in teaching and research - Supportive and professional staff - Works with continuous improvements - Student focused - Great campus - Works actively with internationalization

    Cons

    - The international ambitions are successful when it comes to students going abroad. However, the level of faculty involvement is partial and can be further developed. - Only offers terminal degree in law and the limited size makes it harder to offer Ph D studies in other diciplines.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with the focused strategy - for top notch education with great faculty!

    Pros

    Friendly co workers and management. The students you serve are super polite and friendly. Base pay is fairly competitive. Easy job with a free lunch everyday

    Cons

    Part-time hours with no benefits. There just aren't many cons that I can possibly think of. You might feel bad throwing away some good loaves of bread every Friday.

    I have been working at University of Richmond full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    flexible, great coworkers, compensation, understanding environment, room for advancement, departments work together, high ranked departments compared to national standards

    Cons

    some outdated practices, dependence on the board of trustees

    Advice to Management

    The school is too at the whim of the board of trustees. Everyone tiptoes around not offending them. The school should be serving the needs of the students as their needs advance and progress, not defending upper-class old white male ideologies about what is important for college students
