Cons

    I have been working at Middlebury College full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Retirement and tuition assistance benefits are good. Some departments have balanced work home life expectations. Other departments pile on work as staff leave.

    Cons

    Finance departments are significantly under staffed. Poor communications, definite air of superiority among management in some areas and retribution against staff.

    Advice to Management

    Analyse staffing in departments under Finance. Look at AVP level and staff satisfaction under the AVP's.

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

    Pros

    It's a lovely campus in a lovely area. The students are smart, diverse, and energetic, and the employees are friendly and engaging. There was a strong sense of teamwork and camaraderie in my division, which contained some truly inspirational and competent people.

    Cons

    Pay was on the low-ish end of the spectrum (granted, the cost of living is quite low too, especially when compared to big USA cities) and the winters are serious business!

    Pros

    Beautiful campus, ambitious and intelligent students, good health insurance, flexible vacation time, generous training opportunities

    Cons

    Dysfunctional management, lots of in-fighting among managers, lower than average pay (for the industry), lack of upward mobility

    Advice to Management

    Focus on maintaining the objectively high-level employees with benefits and industry-standard salary. Remove managers who make the environment toxic. Don't elevate managers into positions in which they have no previous experience.
