    "Good but flawed"

    I have been working at Providence College full-time

    Pros

    Students, staff and faculty are usually very dedicated and willing to go the extra mile. Most people seem very happy and interested in their work, which creates an exciting academic atmosphere.

    Cons

    Shockingly sexist place to work--still. The gender breakdown among staff is 60% women, but most of those jobs are support positions. Nearly all of the highest level positions are held by men. The college doesn't cover birth control and there is no paid maternity leave. There's no on-campus daycare, and depending on what department one works in, management may not be at all flexible when it comes to dealing with family issues. Diversity is also an issue among students and staff. This place is very slow to adapt to changes that have become the norm for most other higher ed institutions.


  9. "Mediocre"

    Pros

    -Great life/work balance
    -Free parking and beautiful campus

    Cons

    Very low pay, male dominated working environment and no room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Respect and appreciate your employees.

    I have been working at Providence College part-time

    Pros

    The people at Providence College are so nice and welcoming. Working with these people has been a pleasure. The hours are flexible for me and my boss is understanding.

    Cons

    There have not been many downsides to working here other than maybe the location. The college is located near low income housing on the less prettier side of town.

    Advice to Management

    Keep adding new young talent to the campus. The friendly atmosphere is what keeps this campus running so keep up the talent acquisition.
