    I have been working at Goodwin College full-time

    Pros

    Great culture. People welcome you, and I feel like I could be myself there I've worked in other places and have found that this is the best culture I've ever worked in people who work here passionate about what they do, and believe in treating our students well. It is very inspiring

    Cons

    Medical benefits could be better, because it is really expensive to cover kids or families

    I have been working at Goodwin College full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is an opportunity for employee to get further educational benefits and as an advisor I get a change to change lives for a brief moment

    Cons

    Management is all over the place, don't listen to their staff, and tend to hire base off of who they like and who they are friends with

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff and actually work for the students not your pockets.

    Pros

    A great culture filled with friendly, hardworking and caring individuals. Goodwin really puts the customer (student) at the center of everything they do which is why they have excelled.

    Cons

    Working for a private college isn't always the most lucrative career choice.

    Coworkers are friendly and the campus is pretty.

    I worked at Goodwin College full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you like being treated like pond scum, this place is for you.

    Cons

    Terrible pay. No offices -- you work in a bullpen. Most students have no business being in college, yet you are pressured to not fail them. Five course per term load and summers are included for no additional pay. Low morale and duplicitous management.

    Advice to Management

    None. Management is too corrupt to listen.

    Pros

    Great place to work; people are friendly and welcoming; and strive to provide the best work & study environment possible. Administration takes care of their employees and students as if they are family.

    Cons

    Not all students are respectful of staff, fellow students and the environment. Occasionally favoritism was displayed among staff and students.

    I have been working at Goodwin College full-time

    Pros

    Not a hard job to do.
    Health and education benefits are available.

    Cons

    Education benefits are minimal though there
    A lot of staff and management treat you like you are an idiot though everyone has the same amount of education

    Advice to Management

    If you preach a team then make it a team throughout
