    I worked at Maharishi University of Management part-time

    Pros

    If you like working at a place where mediation (i.e. sitting on your behind doing nothing) is more important that getting things done. Slow pace of life.

    Cons

    You have to drink the kool-aid. It is a guru worshiping, white-washed watered down Hindu cult that believes they will literally stop wars by hopping on their butts and self-hypnotizing. They have a King that lives in a golden palace of "world peace". So that explains where all the money goes... Extremely racist and sexist organization. Research TM Movement yourself and avoid like the plague.

    Advice to Management

    I find it hillarious that a "University of Management" has to contract an outside management company (Aramark) because they recognized that they are unable to manage themselves.

    I worked at Maharishi University of Management full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Quiet, vegetarian-friendly and a nice calm environment to work. lots of rest with the mandated meditation and 'retreats.'

    Cons

    Dogmatic and biased, not very open to alternative viewpoints, or worse, student opinions and desires for their education. Feigned interest in improving the world met by harsh reality of their trademarked programs being unsuccessful. Very isolated. 2 hours to an airport to leave the midwest.

    Advice to Management

    While you are strongly committed to the religious tradition, your marketing says otherwise with the focus on science and secularism. Keep your views out of the workplace and le

    Pros

    The job was relatively stress free. I got to work on a number of projects in the endowment office, I was given autonomy, and everyone seemed to value what I brought to the table. My hours were good (10am-5pm).

    Cons

    My boss was a black hole, any emails I sent to him were never responded to. Meetings were the name of the game, the bigger the group, the better. Decisions took far too long to be made.

    My pay was pretty low, even with included benefits, averaging ~ $15/hr, yet that was still higher than some long-term staff made.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers who are competent and let them make decisions. Trying to achieve consensus in the large Executive Committee is a poor use of time and discounts the skills/experience that each individual manager brings to the job. Set metrics and deliverables for your staff and make sure they meet them.
