    An OK place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsWestern New England has some nice features - an on-campus health center that faculty and staff can use, an attractive campus. There are a lot of great people there and some of the departments are great.

    ConsManagement is kind of tone-deaf, location is kind of in a desert as far as food/shopping/amenities goes. Senior leadership salaries are way far removed from rank and file salaries, more so than at most schools.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great Employer, growing pains, but still great!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Springfield, MA

    ProsFamily style and caring from the top down!

    ConsWith expansion to University status, some poor direction choices were made, namely in hiring who would guide us into the new status. OIT is a perfect example.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStay education centric! You're great at it!

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

    How can you be motivated without advancement.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Springfield, MA

    ProsUnfortunately, the people that work with me are stuck on the same boat so there is an agreeable level of camaraderie. There is not much else going at this place.

    ConsWell... There is the salary which is ever decreasing because the management is unwilling to at least adjust salaries inline with inflation. There are absolutely no opportunities for advancement and it is looked down upon to even ask. There is extreme issues with the mismanagement of the budget.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIn a weak economy, it makes sense to be show some austerity. A spending spree resulted in both a hiring freeze as well as a purchasing freeze. There also must be more opportunities to advance. As of now, the only chance to advance is to apply to an another internal position.

    Assistant Review

    Assistant (Former Employee) Springfield, MA

    Proscasual atmosphere, solid pay, plenty of off time, flexible scheduling, accessible environments, nice people, pleasant campus, good perks, familiar territory.

    Consno future, poor training. high rate of turnover, majority of workers are on federal programs. Varying level of responsibility given, dependent not on skill, but on management whims

    Advice to Senior Managementmanagement should take the student body seriously as a dedicated work force. large pool of potential employees willing to work with loyalty and talent. focus on providing training which will give sustainable skills.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
