    Pros

    Students are wonderful. Nice clean building. Fellow employees are hard working, and all work well together.

    Cons

    Upper management are unappreciative. Very long hours. 60 a week and only salary. Very heavy work load, your responsibilities will grow and grow to the point you will be over whelmed and over worked, and when you can't do it all they treat you terrible, and they loose respect for you. The work load is so extensive you will be working at home on the weekends and still not be caught up and still not appreciated. I was let go cause I could not keep up with all the work but yet I was working 60hours a week at a 40,000. Salary.

    Advice to Management

    Management is ridiculous . Not even allowed to have a fridge or microwave in the kitchen. Not sure how employees are able to eat a sandwich that has not been refrigerated in 100 degree weather in Florida. Sounds like a food poisioning waiting to happen.

    I worked at Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very clean nice facilities. Pretty reasonable paid time off schedule and generous contributions to your retirement fund. They pay the employees insurance premium.

    Cons

    The work atmosphere is brutal. You are likely to be stabbed in the back and thrown under the bus by others looking to avoid the wrath of upper management. The schools is an autocracy, and the rules change from day to day depending on managements' mood. The pay is sub par compared to comparable jobs in the area. Micromanagement is rampant, even something as simple as purchasing dry erase markers has to be sign off on from the top. Turn over is high and morale is incredibly low. Department leaders are often pitted against each other in manufactured conflicts and crisis that upper management can then "solve". Technology is lagging behind, often in a state of disrepair, and most departments run on skeleton crews despite the incredibly high profit margin. You are likely to be bullied by a manger who fears his or her own bullying from above.

    Advice to Management

    Consider contacting a consultant to redesign your entire management structure and methodologies.
    To the board I would say you're being duped. If you had any idea what it was really like in there I would hope you would make changes. Sadly this will likely fall on deaf ears.

    Pros

    You can be married to a fellow employees, which almost everyone is, but quitting will destroy your spouses career also.
    No restriction against reporting to your own husband.

    Cons

    Pay is considerably lower than market rate for similar job.
    The entire environment is ruled by one mercurial woman, and every decision made to appease her rather than to improve the educational mission.
    Employees and students hostage to mood swings and belittling tirades.
    Ridiculous, out of date dress code.

    Advice to Management

    Publish your salaries. Let's see a full accounting for the tuition in this "non-Profit" proprietary school.

    Pros

    good and hard working, I really like to work with Lecom. This is one of the good opportunity to work there

    Cons

    Lecom stays at the urban area. People are very friendly and nice. I don't want to work at the rural area.

    Pros

    Faculty are helpful for the most part.
    Like the students for the most part.
    Staff are helpful for the most part.
    Climate is nice when it's not snowing.
    You don't have to spend too much for a house (so don't, you might want to leave)

    Cons

    Draconian contracts - "whole time" is basically indentured servitude.
    Largely incompetent administration and board of directors.
    Silly regulations routinely promulgated by the dean whenever the whim hits her.
    Expect to get hollered at and treated like a child by the administration
    If you want to protest, the faculty are behind you --- way behind you!

    Advice to Management

    I strongly suggest that each of you resign for the betterment of the institution. This would make way for a competent administration who would do a better job than you.

    Pros

    Mostly stress free environment.
    Most co-workers are pleasant.
    Benefits are free to employee.
    Regular raises.

    Cons

    Pay is relatively low compared to other postions of the same type.

    Advice to Management

    Policies sometimes lack real consideration for employees and students alike. Pay your employees what they deserve!
