    I have been working at Dominican University of California full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Dominican has a great sense of community and is a good University. The campus is beautiful. Great perks for employees like free education for immediate family, tuition exchange program.

    Cons

    Non-profit means non-profit salaries, work spaces vary widely depending in what building you work. Cost to attend is high.

    I have been working at Dominican University of California as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's a beautiful campus and a wonderful teaching faculty. The Department of Occupational Therapy is very well run. The adjuncts are now unionized. This is a perfect position for a retired OT like myself who also has other sources of income. I am not currently teaching, but I can jump in and teach a course whenever I can work it out with the chair of the department.

    Cons

    Adjunct positions do not offer that many hours, no benefits, a rather low salary.

    Advice to Management

    I think the management of the OT Department at Dominican is doing a great job.
