    I worked at Marymount University part-time

    Pros

    It was convenient, to have a job that I could easily go to while I was on campus, the hours are flexible.

    Cons

    The graveyard shift is never great, but it's a must.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful with the schedules around daylight saving time.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Marymount University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Opportunity to be exposed and get more responsibility
     Cheap parking & cheap lunch
    Tons of job openings as most people stay short term
    Top end has heavy salaries

    Cons

    Lack of pay. $30k in Arlington is a joke. Seriously AP at other local schools get paid more

    President tries to be buddy-buddy with students. Student conduct, parking, housing, grades, and tuition issues all go to the president or threaten to all the time. Sometime he actually gets involved, and people that know him get a whole other set of rules to follow

    80% of faculty is adjunct and all services 3rd party vendors

    Pros

    Students are engaged. Department chair is supportive of adjuncts. University seems to recognize their reliance on adjunct labor

    It's a small university without a large endowment. Being so tuition-dependent, there aren't many full-time opportunities there.
