Pros

My direct supervisor is wonderful, the pay is better than at USM (the local competition), the facilities are new or well maintained.

Cons

Constant turnover, senior staff and HR don't know how to effectively communicate, the IT department has been outsourced to a company that doesn't handle the job well (we joke that IT at UNE is Do it Yourself).

Advice to Management

Get a better handle on HR and IT and please work on the turnover issue. Its embarassing and hurts morale. There was one VP who didn't even last three months!

    Pros

    my department chair is kind and generous, easy to work with.

    Cons

    working as an adjunct is no way to live. unless you want to live in Biddeford (no thanks), you need to commute 30+ minutes to work.
    the adjunct pay is terrible. but that's a university issue- not my departments.

    I have been working at University of New England full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Encouraging environment and helpful professors.

    Cons

    Poor compensation. Did not receive a stipend and was charged for tuition as a part of the 4+1 masters program and had to take out loans.

    Advice to Management

    4+1 master's students should receive a stipend, or at least have the full tuition amount waived.
