I worked at Wheelock College full-time

Pros

Within my department, I felt well-supported by my supervisor and got along well with my colleagues. I was able to work on a variety of projects based on my interests.

Cons

There's a good deal of micro-managing that goes on here- may have to do with a lack of trust that employees will execute their jobs in a satisfactory manner. Not fun to be micro-managed.

Advice to Management

Senior management didn't seem to know who I was.

    I have been working at Wheelock College full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The students, faculty and much of the staff are great, intelligent people.

    Cons

    Most of the administration use employees like batteries, create a suffocating atmosphere of too many duties and responsibilities, and continue to pile it on without giving you or your colleagues any resources.

    Advice to Management

    To some directors and most of the VPs - whatever you think you have for little resources your reports and their reports are the ones that have to live with it. You can and do go home at the end of the day, much of the staff does not.

    "This was a difficult environment to be in because various departments could support a uniform message."

    Pros

    The students and faculty are exceptional. This is an environment where the students are passionate about their aspirations and the faculty work to support them. Upper management is not resistant to change & supports students & families.

    Cons

    Mid management were self absorbed and didn't nourish employees. Individual departments did not promote a healthy work environment. The students were not put 1st by all administrators.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure the mission of the college is well supported by employees.
