    I have been working at Benedictine College full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Engaged and friendly teaching faculty

    Many many good, hard working people on the staff side in lower positions

    Close community and relaxed atmosphere much of the time

    Cons

    Corruption from the CFO level on down

    The worst style of helicopter management

    Lifelong employees hired on family connections with no motivation or qualification

    Pandering to a conservative student body has lead to the hiring of unqualified professors in subjects like biology and history

    Extremely dated technological environment, poor support

    Regular maintenance failures leading to flooded buildings and power outages

    Boondoggle of a new building cost 10 million dollars with an entire floor devoted to the top three executives suites'

    Other buildings, especially dorms, over 50 years old with no renovation. Literally falling apart

    Whole school lost an entire semester's work in 2012 due to infrastructure failure

    Many many teachers, staff leaving due to issues above and a generally hostile working environment

    Advice to Management

    None. Management is the issue, they are well aware of it, and they aren't going to do anything about it. Stay away from this school.

    Pros

    Everyone at the school makes you feel like you are a part of what is making the school successful. It is a special place that will always feel like a 2nd home. The school has come a long ways over the past decade in large part due to the alumni donating and caring about their alma mater.

    Cons

    Only negative is Atchison, KS is a small run down city but the campus is beautiful.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.
