"Stop worrying about rankings"

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

Pros

Beautiful campus, free course auditing opportunities, great coworkers

Cons

As an alum, I am not satisfied with the way the college is managing their money and the quick turn over of staff members speaks to the way they feel they are treated and overworked.

Advice to Management

Listen to criticism and stop doing things for rankings only.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Prestige, gorgeous environment, high quality students, faculty and peer-staff, great benefits, flexible schedule, academic work-year. The students, staff and faculty are smart and competent, and usually take pride in their work.

    Cons

    There are upper management and "working-class" positions and the gap between is huge. It is almost impossible to rise from the wage level to the salary level. Managers often don't even mix with staff. Faculty is often oblivious. Wealth is squandered on superficials, and people don't matter as much as image.

    Advice to Management

    It is only ethical for an institution of higher education to offer it's employees a living wage and advancement opportunities. If you would listen to the people who actually do the work, you might learn how to run the college more effectively. The recent cost-cutting has been ruthless and demoralizing.

    I have been working at Wellesley College full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Brilliant and energetic faculty, students, and staff who all deeply believe in the College's mission to educate women who will make a difference in the world. Also, it is the most beautiful campus in the world.

    Cons

    Money has been tight for years due to the need to create room in the operating budget to repair the College's aging buildings.
