      I worked at Lynn University full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Lynn is a very unique place. I guarantee it will be unlike anywhere you've ever worked before. People are incredibly friendly, the grounds are beautiful, but there are many glitches. I'll lead with the positives though; generous time off (full 3 paid weeks off for winter break, the ability to leave at 4pm every day during the summer), and tons of free and delicious food. Also, Lynn is a university largely for students...

      Cons

      The quote of, "Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people," is a true summary of Lynn. Let's just say there's a ton of "people discussing" there... It feels like high school (or worse!) all over again in the sense that your colleagues WILL be saying things about you the moment you leave the room, or think you're out of ear-shot. Instead of focusing on their own individual work,...

      Advice to Management

      Base promotions and opinions of employees purely off performance and nothing else.

      I worked at Lynn University full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      Great staff & flexibility in workday schedule with some departments. I worked here for over a decade with increasing responsibilities. Opportunities you would not have elsewhere come quickly if you are liked. Some incredibly bright faculty and collaboration is possible if you are liked.

      Cons

      Management tend to believe they know everything, yet show little understanding of basic higher education concepts or leadership.. highest level of management seems to have a frat boy mentality. Seem to follow trends that don’t match the student body because they sound good at the moment versus a long term strategy. Students are nice for the most part but are significantly unprepared (and are unaware of how unprepared...

      Advice to Management

      Do your research before jumping into new ventures before you have the school running like a higher ed institution. Your staff deserves higher pay scales for the hours they work and what they contribute to the university/students. Stop the nepotism, sexism and favoritism of administration; you’re driving hard workers away that want to stay.

      I have been working at Lynn University full-time

      Pros

      If you have an idea there are people on the campus that will listen. You have the freedom to explore possibilities. President Ross believes that the campus community works hard and he recognized that with crazy time off during the holidays.

      Cons

      There is little room for growth as a mid-level professional

      Pros

      The students were amazing. The faculty and staff were outstanding.

      Cons

      The administration is disconnected. They say one thing and do something else. They do not want to be educated because they believe they know how to do everything already.
