    I have been working at Molloy College full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Time off, community is generally courteous.

    Cons

    Hiring practices need to be revaluated. Guidelines on nepotism should be implemented. Too many off springs are employed. Pay is low.

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate your communications and people skills and be good role models to your direct reports. Be respectful.

  3. "One of Long Island's Best Institutes of Higher Education"

    I have been working at Molloy College full-time

    Pros

    Molloy College is a great place to work. My colleagues are some of the nicest people I have had the opportunity to work with.

    Cons

    As with most private universities, salary is not as great as it is with the SUNY schools (because they are state/union employees).

    Pros

    Wonderful co-workers, great benefits, wonderful students

    Cons

    People are hired into senior jobs w/o any experience in that particular line of work. Complaints to HR are not investigated properly but rather take the "easy" way out regardless of "right and wrong"

    Advice to Management

    Hire qualified candidates into department head roles.

    I have been working at Molloy College full-time

    Pros

    Health Benefits, tuition benefits and retirement benefit. Very nice campus. People are generally pleasant. All staff receives across the board 2 or 2.5 percent raise every year.

    Cons

    No reward for hard work; no advancement opportunities. Often positions are not announced; people receive new position/title and it is big secret. Many women with title of Administrative Assistant (all women); some have few responsibilities, others are managing entire departments. Yet they all have Admin. Assistant titles and all receive same pay. Not one Admin Assistant could live on their salary; many have two, three jobs. No one talks about it. Everyone afraid to loose job.

    Advice to Management

    Purchase HR software so HR can do their jobs. Pay equity for all, not just faculty. So much money being wasted on purchases; any Admin Assistant could show you how to find cheapest ways to purchase supplies, etc. Still using vendors that charge way too much. The money saved could be used to raise staff salaries. Staff are used to saving pennies any way we can. Management under utilizes so much talent.

    I have been working at Molloy College full-time

    Pros

    The student body is very polite and a pleasure to teach, though extremely sheltered - undergraduates mostly sourced from local Catholic Schools. Co-workers are nice, most work there for the no-stress lifestyle.

    Cons

    The environment is parochial and outdated, which is a shame given the location so close to NYC. Performance is measured on the number of meetings attended, as opposed to value added in education. The graduate MBA program is a challenge to facilitate. No GMAT requirement leaves the professors having to teach middle school concepts.

    Advice to Management

    None, as they are happy with the way things are.

    I worked at Molloy College (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very friendly staff and faculty. The administrative staff is also very hardworking and competent. They want what is best for the school/its students.

    Cons

    Parking is a bit of a headache as a professor. Adjuncts are not allowed to park in the lot for professors and it can sometimes cause timing issues.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    I worked at Molloy College (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    For those wishing to have to buy coffee and donuts for their department chair to get ahead- this is the place for you!

    Cons

    People teaching outside of their areas of expertise, nepotism, unfair hiring practices, not an equal opportunity environment, no support for minoritues or GLBTQ, department chairs that have too many personal issues

    Advice to Management

    Rethink who you hire as department chairs, look around and see the lack of diversity in your faculty and staff, and stop the discriminating hiring practices look at how many qualified part time employees never get hired full time. There are many highly qualified and loved adjuncts and staff that never get hired- look into it before your discriminatory practices ruin your accreditation- it will be discovered. Valerie is a biggot and shouldn't be permitted to walk around like she's the president of the college and take whatever job she feels she wants.

    I have been working at Molloy College part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Students at Molloy joke that they have to be nice in order to get in no matter what their SAT scores may be. In fact, the students ARE delightful, and the staff is as well. The campus is safe, secure, and the quality of the education offered is as solid, and in some cases even better, as any of its competition on Long Island.

    Cons

    Adjunct salary is pretty low and stagnant.

    Advice to Management

    Pay raises for adjunct faculty.
