    I worked at Lynn University part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The working conditions are Lynn are generally relaxed and comfortable. Lynn has a family-oriented organizational culture.

    Cons

    It is very hard to get your foot in the door. Majority of the faculty and staff have established relationships with the university that allowed them the opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise management to have a more inclusive hiring process. I feel like a lot of qualified applications are overlooked to maintain the current faculty and staff structure.

    Pretty fun gig. Lots of great coworkers and campers.
