    I worked at Drew University full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Family friendly for the most part thanks to nearby child care on campus and flexible university work days and hours

    Cons

    No raises, support, procedures, or controls. This place is a mess! One of the most dysfunctional environments I have ever had the misfortune of working. New employees immediately have buyers remorse, old employees are tragically undervalued. At Drew you'll only spin your wheels then get stuck in the rut. Avoid at all costs.

    Advice to Management

    Better financial controls. Good lord.

    I worked at Drew University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most people were respectful and polite to each other,and there was a friendly atmosphere. The departments not directly dealing with academics were all respectful to each other and quick to respond to each other. The campus is also quite lovely.

    Cons

    Primarily? Low morale. There was also poor decisions in terms of asking departments to direct their resources towards programs which did not help the university's academics very much but looked nice to have, which gave a feeling of forced ineffectiveness.

    Advice to Management

    A direction needs to be decided and the vision given a specific list of actions which departments can do to meet the goal. These actions should not be vague. Finances also need to be managed better, both at the highest levels and in the individual departments.
