    I worked at Mount Mary College full-time

    Pros

    Everyone cares about the students and the staff are like a family. The campus is beautiful and parking is free.

    Cons

    Pay is low and the job titles do not match the work required. Many managers have been in their position for years and don't know how to manage.

    I worked at Mount Mary College (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Close-knit community, collaborating with the SSNDs

    Cons

    Employees are extremely undervalued and underpaid. Professional development is not a priority.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate well and often. Too many times bad news was communicated "all of a sudden." It makes it look like the upper administration is sneaking around with secrets.

    Also, recognize your employees who work tirelessly to help Mount Mary be a place for students to learn and grow.

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    free parking. Tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    Culture of criticism and blame -- at both existing levels (top and bottom). Serious concerns about ethics.

    Advice to Management

    Won't matter. Un-savalgeable.

    Pros

    Coworkers were great, they were very flexible and understood about having to take time off. Hours were great, worked mornings and had afternoons to enjoy the great Wisconsin summer

    Cons

    Management was very disorganized. They lacked certain tools and equipment to get jobs done in a timely and effective manner.

    I worked at Mount Mary College part-time

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, the students always kept you on your toes.

    Cons

    I left not too long ago but while there, experienced such a lack of communication between all campus parties which made work difficult. I was staff but heard complaints from administrators and faculty as well. The College has a student database system which I believe was implemented 6 years ago. They were advised to roll the system out over a span of 2 years and instead did it in 6 months. The company itself told Mount Mary they were crazy for doing so. Because the system is a mess and it seemed like no one really understood how to use it-- there was lots of finger pointing when issues arose. Pay is low and when I was there I felt underappreciated for my work as well.

    Pros

    The mission is social justice and this is discussed through presentations and workshops throughout campus. Many women work at the campus, but it is also very welcoming to men. People tend to support each other and help each other out. The people that work at Mount Mary are genuine.

    Cons

    Salaries tend to be low and there does not seem to be a sense to obtain equal pay to similar schools in the near future.

    Advice to Management

    Pay staff/faculty what they are worth and what the growing market value indicates.
