    Pros

    Great tuition benefits, 403B match & health insurance. Yearly pay increases.

    Cons

    Grew too big too quickly - they don't always know what they're doing and the workload can be a little too much at times.

    I worked at Quinnipiac University full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Being able to see the beautiful landscape of Sleeping Giant gives some reprieve from the child-like, unethical, and immoral behaviors of staff. Not the students...the staff! Quinnipiac, it’s senior leadership, and staff are proud of how they are able to nicely package what otherwise is considered a false reality...garbage to put it nicely.

    Cons

    Certain senior staff that utilize others through manipulation, scare-tactics, and rude/“mean-girl” type behavior. If you don’t create and maintain a fake persona, then you might as well consider yourself an outsider. Be prepared to keep you lips glued to a lot of rear-ends if you want to thrive or survive.

    If data is collected to answer your question(s), then be prepared for skewed and manipulated information as well. Sifting through that just reveals the university’s true colors of its staff.

    Advice to Management

    To the upper level, senior administration- clean house! The greatest predictor of future behavior is past behavior, so there are staff members that will never change. Regardless of how many chances you give them to change, they will just work to convince you they’ve changed, but they themselves will just do more harm.

    Good luck getting anyone to take action in a way that is unbiased and appropriate.

    I have been working at Quinnipiac University full-time

    Pros

    There are countless opportunities at Quinnipiac, including many different clubs, Greek life, and internship/employment guidance. Study abroad programs are also available, including a program in Los Angeles that focuses on taking classes and participating in an internship.

    Cons

    I have noticed a political bias thus far at Quinnipiac, mostly by the professors teaching the material. This could negatively influence students and discourage them from not thinking freely and working towards their own opinions.

    Advice to Management

    My only advice to management would be to reinforce the idea that a professors personal opinions and bias should have no impact on the material they teach in their classes.
