    I have been working at Mercer University full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Family atmosphere, chance to get involved with directly with students and in the Macon community, very supportive managers and friendly staff, tons of opportunity to do new things and make a name for yourself

    Cons

    A little old-fashioned when it comes to updating technology
    Pay isn't competitive with national averages
    Senior level directors sometimes more concerned with image than integrity

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the people. Your staff. Salaries, training, benefits. If you want to attract and retain young professionals to the area, these things matter. Otherwise, the attrition will continue.

    Pros

    Great being part of historic growth of institution; healthcare was great

    Athletics trumped academics in importance. More important to grow than to cultivate and pay quality faculty and staff. Saw many fine people leave willingly and unwillingly who were huge assets. Little room for career growth.

    I worked at Mercer University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Inclusive environment where student participation is encourage. The students are invested in all aspects of the educational experience. The smaller campus allows for staff to truly know students and help in their development. Tremendous amount of collaboration between departments. Beautiful campus with lots of activity for staff, factually and students.

    Cons

    While leadership can be wonderful, like anywhere, it can depend on the department. I found some inconsistencies to how certain departments were led with little care to address staff conflict issues.
