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

Pros

AU has great benefits, including tuition remission and a 2-for-1 match on up to a 5% donation to your 403 (b) retirement account. All the staff whom I work with truly value and care about the students.

Cons

There is, of course, internal politics, and the management skill can very from department to department. At its worst, upper level academicians may make decisions without collaborating/ seeking consensus with offices that may be impacted by those decisions.

Advice to Management

Think about how your decision impacts relevant offices on campus.

    I have been working at American University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Location, location, location! Many talented and renowned faculty in their field.

    Cons

    There is a lack of support for staff - little opportunity for promotion or growth, small budgets, there is no flex or comp time for working later hours for events or programs.

    Advice to Management

    Really evaluate who runs Student Life, based on employees. I think you will find there is an incredible among of distrust and dissatisfaction.
