Pros

The students are the only reason why this job is enjoyable.

Cons

Management is terrible throughout the departments. Stuck in a union that protects the bad workers. Poor communication.

Advice to Management

Need to improve training, whether through tuition reimbursement at other Universities (as there is little offered here) or other ways to receive training. Higher better managers.

    I worked at Roger Williams University part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Roger Williams always gave the opportunity to connect and develop a relationship with your supervisor(s).

    Cons

    Because of the politics of a small, liberal, University, do not expect to move up in management unless you make the "right" connections. Also, the more money you personally have, the more likely you're going to make the "right" connections. A lot of interviewees are judged by their clothing, if you do not wear the correct brands, you will not get the job.
