    I worked at Notre Dame de Namur full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, lots of positive reinforcement, and surrounded by people who appreciate higher education, and nature.

    Cons

    With all educational institutions, is lack of funds, you have to work here for the passion of what it is your seeking.

    Advice to Management

    I know you all are committed to do the best with what is available. I will remember you all forever especially the Sisters of Notre Dame.

    I worked at Notre Dame de Namur (More than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers and supervisors are always friendly, and versatile in their knowledge base. Students have very reliable, and prompt one on one appointments with staff. If you like working in a university that's quick to travel between campus buildings, and with class sizes comparable to community college size classrooms and offices as opposed to a large auditorium then you would enjoy working here.

    Cons

    The university is on a hill. It only takes about 5 - 7 minutes to walk up the hill from street level, but disabled students and/or staff using wheelchairs that are manual as opposed to motorized might have a bit of a challenge getting up the driveway on the hill. So, they may need to make arrangements with the public safety office or an agency like Ready Wheels to take them up the hill.

    Students are great and a blast to work with them in all of the classes. They want the best education and they should get it.

    Cons

    Management not so good and I don't think they really care about the teaching staff. many abuses in scheduling too many students per class.

    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.

    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.

    Let the people (subject matter experts) do their job.
