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

    Pros

    Wonderful people, beautiful campus, tradition, history, awesome new vision. Going Co-Ed has added great new energy to our campus. Professors care about each student's success. Strong and exciting athletics programs, done right.

    Cons

    Salaries could be higher but I am sure as the University continues its upward trend, the salaries will increase. Communication and collaboration among different departments needs to improve.

    Advice to Management

    Consult with those who have been at the school for a while and have had success. Those who understand that negatives exist everywhere but who also know that with an amazing foundation that is in place here coupled with the new vision and energy generated with steady increase in enrollment future of Georgian Court University is bright.

    Pros

    GCU's mission is its strength. It is a high-touch institution striving to educate the whole person - mind, body, soul. Faculty is second to none!

    Cons

    Limited resources (financial and personnel) make it a challenge to do the great things the university is capable of doing.

    Advice to Management

    Use the talent you have more effectively!

    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.

    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)
