    I have been working at Georgian Court University (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoy knowing what I teach has a profound impact on my students and the patients they will encounter.

    Cons

    One downside of working at GCU, is the university currently does not have a course that I would be able to teach year round. (Winter/Summer)

    I worked at Georgian Court University full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Small family like atmosphere. You feel like you can make a difference. Lots of work to do. Trying hard with some small success.

    Cons

    On the edge of bankruptcy and everyone working there knows it. Very tense atmosphere. Been circling the drain for six or seven years. If student attendance is not increased failure will follow.

    Advice to Management

    Review expenditures in non core disciplines and cut loose the programs that cost big yet yield few results. Study long term operational costs for marginal programs.

    I have been working at Georgian Court University full-time

    Pros

    Beautiful campus, mostly free lunches.

    Cons

    Work like a dog for no money. Treated like "just a secretary", but responsibilities through the roof! Snobby/pretentious people in management. Even with all the letters after their names, they probably couldn't run a playground. Think twice before working here. Turnover is ridiculous in a lot of departments. Don't drink the kool-aid!

    Advice to Management

    Abide by your own mercy core values! Compressed work weeks suck for those of us who really work 40 hours. Watch your own managers who disappear & make their own hours & talk a lot of garbage.

    Pros

    My immediate boss was awesome. The professors were terrific. Students and parents were wonderful. A great environment to work in.

    Cons

    Grant ended and would have preferred full time employment.

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

    Pros

    Rewarding at times. Beautiful campus and free food every day at the cafeteria. Nice to work in a college atmosphere.

    Cons

    Pay is extremely low. Over worked and expected to go above and beyond for no reward/compensation/promotion. People in charge do not care about work/life balance and expect that you are a robot who works until 9pm every day and on weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Work on a work/life balance structure that makes people want to come to work every day. Improve positivity in the office.

    Pros

    A lot of time off

    I worked at Georgian Court University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Free lunch, students are challenging in a positive way, flexible hours and attempts to have faculty choose their own schedules, working at a university is a privilege and an experience like no other.

    Cons

    Awful salaries with no room to negotiate, no room for growth, no funding to develop new methods/attend conferences/research, extremely "big brother-esque" administrators. Despite it formerly being a women's college, it is not a female friendly work environment at all. Extremely regressive atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Administration seems incredibly out of touch with reality and the university is struggling financially as a result. Pay your professors a fair wage and stop investing in administrators who would rather have a fancy title and sit in an expensive office holding redundant meetings, than see the money go to supporting research or programs that actually bring money and students on to campus. When large groups of women students and faculty from programs all leave simultaneously, it means something.
