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

    Pros

    plenty of days off, including long Christmas/Easter breaks. Other Catholic holidays off, and most of the federal holidays too. 1/2 days Fridays in the summer, and of course a generous annual and sick leave policy. excellent 401K match, but you have to wait a year for it to kick in, and have to be at least 26 years old for it.
    everyone on campus is friendly, and generally easy to work with.

    Cons

    there is always stuff "behind the scene" that seems to be going on, so you get the sense of a lack of transparency. also, the pay could improve by ALOT! the health insurance need to be looked into too!

    Advice to Management

    consider improving the pay for your employees,

    I have been working at Catholic University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Beautiful campus/landscaping, managers and staff members are pleasant to work with. Generous vacation and holidays, low-stress job.

    Cons

    The IT department had gone through horrible restructuring and reorganization that resulted in massive layoffs and resignation. Generally staff are treated as a second class citizens and the pay for staff is really low. Due to some financial predicament in the past few years, salary for mid and low level staff has remained static. Some of the senior level staff are over paid.
