    I worked at John Cabot University as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    JCU is well-known for having an ideal result-oriented and fast-paced environment, and an inspirational workplace committed to delivering excellent experiences to its students and prospects. Having no boundaries and constantly pushing the limits of what the Undergrad University can offer, JCU will inspire you to have a similar vision and make you strongly believe that you belong to its workforce.

    Cons

    The lack of harmony among the different departments of the University

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at John Cabot University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Colleagues are very warm and helpful, for the most part.. Great place to make friends. Excellent pay and perks to the job. Very engaging and will keep you busy and productive. Beautiful setting and work environment.

    Cons

    Can be very demanding and stressful at times. Lack of direction from some of the upper management. Wonky management leads to confusion and further stress, but I suppose that can be expected anywhere at times.

    Advice to Management

    Structure, guidance, and attention to detail could be improved. Criticism of staff can often be traced back to incompetence of certain people in management.

    Pros

    The work environment is casual and the hours are flexible. Employees are international and generally a very nice group of people to work with.

    Cons

    Salaries start very low and there is little or no room for growth. Salaries also seem to be unequal among employees. There is no system of review and there is a major lack of communication between management and employees. Nobody takes care of employees and when there is a question in regard to human resources it is difficult to get a clear answer from anyone. The university needs more structure and better and clearer guidelines for its employees.

    Advice to Management

    Review employee performance, provide more communication, feedback, incentives, etc., focus more on your employees in order to provide a better service to students.
