    I worked at Haverford College (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    A lot of nice people.

    Cons

    Too many not so nice people. Perks are given for sucking up, doing a good job isn't taken into consideration. Some senior staff are horribly mean and two faced. Their so called transition is a means to get rid of those who don't follow the agenda. Unethical practices. To much control going to BM college with a horribly low endowment raises concern - merger

    Advice to Management

    Transition to new management - or old management. Go back to letting the students and staff participate in running the school, in reality, not in theory

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Haverford College (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great over all employee Benefits.

    Cons

    When management does not like an employee they make up things on employees and tells the manager to make sure that when they do their reviews that they put negative reviews. How can employees have excellent annual reviews and no sick days and no call outs be fired? An employee with a known disability was fired, They are not following the employment laws as they should.

    Advice to Management

    Get qualified management.

    Pros

    Student workers at Haverford get paid more than their Bryn Mawr counterparts. We also seem to have more positions available.

    Cons

    As a student worker, not much. However, full-time staff workers do not seem to have much communication with administration and upper management. Things are always delayed and changing.

    Advice to Management

    Please listen to your employees and students, and then be proactive.

    I have been working at Haverford College full-time

    Pros

    Consensus is a community ideal.

    Cons

    The aim to be inclusive and attentive to diverse points of view can lead to obstruction and manipulation of process.

    Advice to Management

    The infrastructure for systems - accounting, maintenance, administrative support - is currently too lean and in spots, broken. Salaries for all staff are sub-par. The College is stingy with staff other than faculty and offers very little in the way of positive feedback.

    I have been working at Haverford College full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly environment with lovely people.

    Cons

    Dont expect a pay raise more than 2%. Which if you are an hourly employee that's cents on a dollar. No where to move up or incentive to be better at your job.

    I worked at Haverford College (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The nicest people you will ever meet work at Magill Library. They totally spoiled me and ruined for post-grad employment because they are so nice and forgiving!

    Cons

    The work can be boring and is mostly oriented towards faculty research. But what else do you expect from a work-study job?

    Advice to Management

    You are great! Never change! The building needs some major enhancements though.

    Pros

    The campus is gorgeous and most of the staff are extremely nice. Awesome holiday time off as well as an amazing benefit package.

    Cons

    This college is a very liberal atmosphere. If you are at all conservative, you might have a difficult time.
