    I have been working at Notre Dame de Namur full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Smart and hardworking colleagues. The location is beautiful, a natural environment within a city and on the northern end of Silicon Valley. Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    There are good and bad elements of benefits. The medical plan is costly if you insure family members or partners. Time off is generous. Salary/pay is low for the region. There are faculty who feel entitled to higher pay and share negative attitudes because of it.

    Advice to Management

    I feel that management is doing the best they can to ensure long-term health and stability for the university. That said, they need to provide regular salary increases commensurate with performance. A performance based salary structure is fair.

    I have been working at Notre Dame de Namur full-time

    Pros

    The workplace environment is one of the best that I've ever encountered in my work history. At one point I became extremely ill and not only were they very willing to help accommodate my schedule but also remained supportive throughout the experience.

    Cons

    Pay is low but holidays and holiday pay is generous. Good health insurance. Tuition remission is a huge plus. Had a workplace harassment issue that went on for nearly a year until action was finally taken by higher management.

    Advice to Management

    Consider paying staff more equally.

    Pros

    Good mission helping first generation and lower income students. Very diverse and location and campus has potential.

    Cons

    Faculty is unionizing wanting more and the University is making cuts because they have less. Totally moving in different directions and in total disarray. Unless this can be resolved and everyone starts marching to the same tune, the University won't survive.

    Advice to Management

    There are only one solution to the problem - more revenue. More students for more revenue or more donations for more revenue. Fixed costs are too high for current revenue.
