I worked at Mercy College full-time (More than a year)

Pros

I have nothing good to say about working at Mercy. They have a bait and switch policy of recruiting people to work - they bait you with promises of one position and they switch it up on you once you have joined - the department I was supposed to work for and my supervisor were changed the first day I arrived for work...

Cons

Long hours, put up and shut up attitude of management, and general feeling of constant unease since everone was basically plotting their exit strategies. Never felt that management was there to encourage and help with achieving goals - rather they set unrealistic goals and expected you to reach them - no questions asked.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    felxiable adn enjoyable work place. Great atmosphere for students to learn and professionals to grow. a shared experience for all involved in the high education field.

    Cons

    Weekend hours are strenuous and sometime you have to tell students news they do not want to hear including denying them from programs or financial aide opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    360 reviews between employees and supervisors could lead to a much more cohesive workplace where titles would not govern the office.

    Pros

    You will be challenged and pushed to work to the best of your ability. You will have a great resume when you leave because you will have more responsibility that the position that you were hired for.

    Cons

    It is really hard to meet the expectations of the people that manage you. A lot is demanded of you. You are not allowed to have a personal life and rarely get time off from work. The hours are long and the salary does not meet the industry standards.

    Advice to Management

    Treat staff like you would like staff to treat you.
