    I worked at University of Saint Joseph (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I was professionally accomplished and then head-hunted for the Executive Assistant position at the Wadsworth Atheneum. I felt that personally and professionally this was a position I was to accept and pursue, I excelled in two writing tests and showed examples of my organizational and communciation skills and was hired within 2 days.

    Cons

    Low pay, loved my job


  2. Staff and Faculty care deeply about students, but leadership can lack direction and focus

    Pros

    Very welcoming community, phenomenal retirement benefits, small department staff numbers allow employees to be involved in many different projects and learn new skills, students are wonderful to work with, the support staff for all departments are pleasant and willing to support each other

    Cons

    Individual professional development is lacking and formal mentorship is virtually non-existent, internal and external organizational messaging is not always consistent and departments often do not communicate with each other making simple tasks harder

    Advice to Management

    Create ways to cut through the bureaucracy that impedes progress by reviewing long standing processes, and continue to create opportunities for employees to support each other through development and training

    Pros

    University of Saint Joseph offers a great work-life balance and management treats all individuals with respect. Many offices are understaffed so you will be very busy, but it's good to have the opportunity to work on a variety of projects, with varying levels of difficult. USJ offers 100% tuition reimbursement to full-time employees and a great 403B match program.

    Cons

    low salary, little room for advancement

    Pros

    quality of students, good communications, respect for faculty, good compensation. A growing off-campus program for master's degree candidates and adjunct faculty- good academic rigor.

    Cons

    Syllabi are sometimes a bit outdated and need to be reworked. Off campus programs make no distinction between full schedule classes and 8 week classes even though there is a lot less non-class time to complete work.

    Pros

    Working with the students is wonderful. Most of the students are extremely courteous and grateful for the assistance they receive. The campus is also very pretty.

    Cons

    There is a serious lack of communication between departments.

    Advice to Management

    Measures need to be made to foster better communication on campus. Staff feel at odds with each other.
