I worked at Ross University as a contractor

Pros

When I was there, Ross U was wealthy enough to hire an army of temps and contractors, as well as supply water coolers, a Keurig brewer, and the occasional catered lunch. Even if you're only a temp, Ross will treat you as well as their regular employees and help you blend in. Many of the temps or contractors are eventually offered full-time positions if they stay long enough. The culture is very laid-back.

Cons

With all the growth and increased staffing, the office felt crowded at times. The cubicles and conference rooms always felt a bit cramped to me. The temps and contractors are there because the regular staff is often overworked. Expect to deal with some screeching hens and the smell of everyone's lunches around noon. The location is also a bit inconvenient: arriving and leaving via entrance/exit ramps on Rt 1 is a bit of a hassle, especially during construction or rough weather. Also, since Ross is part of DeVry, expect all the pros and cons that come with being part of a publicly-traded for-profit university.

    I have been working at Ross University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The culture and ideas are wonderful, the belief that students come first has always been the main focus

    Cons

    there are a lot of promises that aren't fulfilled. Sometimes they are more worried about pleasing people more than helping people on a more professional level

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the colleagues, be the advocate for your employees.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Ross University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits are OK and a few good folks work there

    Cons

    - High school bullying and racism tolerated
    - No room for advancement unless you're a member of the "clique"
    - Most of management can barely write an email, as such if you're highly educated, outspoken and smart; you'll be vilified
    - Don't think about job enrichment, most roles involve very mundane "busy-work" and you dare not try to operate outside of your scope or go above & beyond; it'll be deemed as "you're trying to take over"

    ***Only work here if you're looking for something temporarily and extremely desperate for employment***

    Advice to Management

    Please hire competent management or at least provide some soft skills/professionalism training. It is an embarrassment to have these people lead a medical institution!!
