    I have been working at Marymount Manhattan full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's a small college so most of the staff knows each other well, and much of upper management is accessible. Goals for diversity, inclusivity, and betterment of the college are great; on paper this place is a sparkling progressive safe-haven. The education is quality, and faculty are well-respected and very generous with their time and talent. Many of the students are bright, passionate, and an asset to the community.

    Cons

    Many of the goals are not fulfilled because of disagreements between Deans, Vice Presidents, etc. There is a lot of resistance to the new President from certain older, veteran members of the upper management. Many offices are chronically understaffed, and adjuncts are paid an at an embarrassingly low rate. The financial aid office is a disorganized disaster, and IT can't type its way out of a paper bag. Communication between departments is abysmal, and the gossip mill is constantly churning.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate. Communicate. Communicate. Listen to your employees, and maybe attend a few of the professional development workshops on cooperation that you send your peons to every month. And pay your adjuncts a living wage.

    A very friendly place, with great students.

    I worked at Marymount Manhattan full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I was able to really build up my resumes in the amount of work I was given. New projects and college wide initiatives included my office, which meant I was very hands-on with the brainstorming. I was also able to run with most ideas that I had.

    Cons

    Lack of supervision of Assistant Directors, Directors, etc. of different departments by the college leadership. Small college means you can't really move up.

    Advice to Management

    Check in more often with lower level employees to check on their experience in the office.

    Worked in business department, the management was good about allowing a place for growth and improvement.

    Keep continuing what you are doing it has worked thus far and will continue on for sure!
