    I worked at Merrimack College full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Wonderful and diverse staff and student body, and the college goes out of its way to make a sense of community. The administration also does well in looking out for its employees, even term faculty.

    Cons

    The college May not have a grad program or enough resources for research. But that really depends on the department.

    The people are great and you really get to know the people you are working with.

    It can sometimes get boring, but when it's busy in your specific office, you are completely busy.

    I worked at Merrimack College full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Community is fantastic. It's the reason people go, the reason they stay, and the reason they don't leave. It's what makes Merrimack great.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic at times. Which is to be expected with any large organization. Particularly a college. Not everyone is on the same page always.

    Pros

    The students and coworkers are fantastic, friendly, and welcoming people. Fantastic paid holiday schedule.

    Cons

    No internal growth. They tend to hire far too many VP's and upper level management but no support. If they hire support, they tend to post positions geared toward a particular person from outside the campus. There is no internal posting system or job grading system. Staff support is touted as the face of the campus yet are not compensated as such.

    Advice to Management

    There are far too many upper level managers and not enough support. Learn to appreciate experience and loyalty. Stop making up job titles just to give compensation. Promote the people you have and stop looking outside for friends.

    I have been working at Merrimack College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice people, beautiful campus, supportive administration, nice students. Students are hard workers and the people who work with you are eager to help when you need it.

    Cons

    Not too close to Boston. Not a particularly diverse group of students, if that is what you are looking for. Very traditional Catholic campus, which could be either a pro or a con, depending upon how you look at it. Campus is growing faster than they are posting jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Create more positions

    Pros

    If you live north of Boston you will have an easy commute since located near Route 93 and Route 495. They offer a generous number of paid holidays.

    Cons

    The top leaders could greatly benefit from an effective executive coach to work on their ability to build employee engagement.

    Advice to Management

    Live the values that you espouse.

    I worked at Merrimack College part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I found the fellow staff members to be friendly, particularly the department secretary; I enjoyed the students

    Cons

    Low, low pay for time put in; very little guidance from above, as the main issue I had teaching (I assigned too much reading) was one of the specific points I asked the department chair when preparing my syllabus.

    Advice to Management

    Train chairs on how to mentor adjuncts, for which I feel I received zip
