    Fun, challenging, and rewarding!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe office was fun to work for, it was a great team, and we got to observe a lot going on!

    ConsSometimes the team leader didn't trust us enough to delegate.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Unsupportive of staff, high regard for students

    (Former Employee)

    ProsSmall community of folks who will often greet you by name.
    Beautiful town.
    University seems to be constantly improving infrastructure.
    Free classes for some full-time employees.

    ConsA great many of the people in the town hold the same views on a number of subjects, disagree and you might find yourself ostracized.
    Pay is on the low, low end of norm relative to the job.
    Not much housing in the area and what is available is grossly overpriced.
    Students are treated like gold, often to the demise of staff members.
    Upper "management" who will listen to problems you've encountered and not bother to do anything about them.
    Human Resources department leadership lacks the ability to function.
    Racial undertones still exist in many realms.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your staff members like you actually want them to stay and advance!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A warm and supportive work force!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat people, wonderful community, and educated students. The benefits are good and the British architecture makes it a visually pleasing place to work.

    ConsThe leadership can be scattered and few have any degrees or experience in business. This is an academic setting and the business functions reflect that atmosphere. There is certainly room to grow but change cannot happen from lower or middle management. Also, pay is low but the cost of living is low as well.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great people to work with, HR not so much

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat opportunities to get involved with community, dogs everywhere, coworkers are great, campus is absolutely beautiful, everyone seems to really love the university as a whole, great community

    ConsHR doesn't always treat their employees fair when it comes to renewing contracts, opportunities for growth are limited if you don't want to adhere to staff politics

    Advice to Senior Managementtreat your employees fairly, don't always take someone elses word against an employee, actually investigate the situation as a whole

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
