      Negative Outlook
      Approves of CEO

      I have been working at Barnard College

      Pros

      There are many great people that work here. good vacation days. lots of sick days.

      Cons

      Antiquated systems. No real raises for union employees. High turnover = always starting from square one with new people.

      Advice to Management

      poll the middle staff workers on what needs to improve. the administrators are the ones that know how everything works.

        I worked at Barnard College

        Pros

        Barnard is a great place to work with a nice atmosphere and amazing benefits. Really great people all over the school.

        Cons

        The pay is a little below market for the most part, but the benefits and atmosphere make up for it.

        Advice to Management

        Keep up the good work!

        I have been working at Barnard College

        Pros

        There's a department for everything. Computer won't work? Call BCIT, etc. Meeting great people with a lot of knowledge.

        Cons

        Sometimes it can be difficult to get the cooperation of some people in different administrative departments who are crucial to your productivity (i.e. responding to emails, phone calls, etc.)

        I have been working at Barnard College

        Pros

        Some offices have incredibly flexible work environments, including dress, work hours, working from home, but this is not the general case across the college. The campus is lovely, the neighborhood is great. People are generally intelligent, as are the students you might encounter.

        Cons

        Low pay. Very few people ever get a significant raise. Raises are often tiny and for everyone almost equally across the board - regardless of performance. Competent and strong employees are not retained. They are worked until they burnt out and get sick of the low pay and lack of appreciation and they leave for greener pastures. Since the best talent is often pushed out by the college's unwillingness to reward those who...

        Advice to Management

        Try to retain the employees that make everyone's lives better, who are competent and dedicated. Their higher salaries will cost you less in the long run than the revolving door of employees you see now. They will continue to put out better work, which everyone benefits from.
