I worked at Notre Dame full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great benefits, offer 50% tuition benefit to children of employees.
Overall solid leadership, a place you will be proud to work, an organization that tries to do the "right thing" at all times.
Impressive brand.
If you are an ND Football fan you will be in heaven. Nice discount on tickets and solid access to ticket through campus network.
Great place for someone at the end of their career to work (45+).

Cons

Old school. Probably about 25 years behind in terms of treatment and promotion of women.
Slow to act (but I believe this is a characteristic of institutions of higher learning.)
Does not deal with low performers. I have reflected on this a lot. I think it is because 1) they know they are the main employer in the area and they have compassion for people (ie. if they fire someone, that person would likely be looking at a relocation) and 2) the tuition benefit (again compassion for the employee (even if they suck) who has a child in school.)

Advice to Management

Have the courage to part ways with poor performers. Period.

    I worked at Notre Dame part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    To work for Notre Dame is a great experience. They off some of the best healthcare I've ever personally witnessed. The atmosphere is quite warming and cultured very strongly.

    Cons

    There aren't many cons to working for Notre Dame. Upper management (staff, not faculty) is very strict and doesn't promote dynamic thinking. Power assertion is a big deal at Notre Dame.

    Advice to Management

    I'd like to see more enabling of critical thinking.
