    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Providence College full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of great benefits and pay, salaried employees do not usually work more than 40 hours a week.

    Cons

    Getting anything on-boarded takes a lot of work. Still a glass ceiling at this institution, women are paid well, but we are still not allowed in positions of power.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to onboard staff and have a transfer of knowledge plan in place. Allow women into the decision-making process, not just the paperwork.
