    I have been working at Holy Cross College part-time

    Pros

    Michigan is only five miles away with many cool things to do.

    Cons

    The Holy Cross College community follows precedent. Students coming here tend to be those individuals who prefer established traditions such as Catholic Church teachings, the perception of a prestigious Notre Dame (across the street and run by the same religious order), and ND sports, especially the legacy of football.

    I worked at Holy Cross College as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    None from job standpoint. Very nice students, though. It is a Christian college so attracts nice students who are great to work with.

    Cons

    Layoffs in all departments are currently ongoing. Pay has been reduced for all positions. Except leadership salaries continue at high levels. Job benefits are zero-No benefits. No support of faculty or students. All student- support services have been cut due to deep staff cuts

    Advice to Management

    None.

    I worked at Holy Cross College full-time

    Pros

    Holy Cross and Gateway students are amazing!!

    Cons

    No transparency of governance; special interests control the college's strategic plan. At will employment means even tenured faculty's positions are eliminated without 1 months notice.

    Advice to Management

    Improve strategic planning with eye on the future.

    I have been working at Holy Cross College as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling and easy going superiors.

    Cons

    This institution is very young and transitioning to a four year model after being a junior college for decades. It has a lack of vision and in that case its tough for any employee to completely trust the management of this school as many things are said, but action is rarely taken. Employee turnover is very high for a school that should be growing.

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep your employees in their roles or expand their roles to help continuity and recruiting efforts.
