    I worked at Quinnipiac University full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Many nice people and dedicated faculty/ academic leaders. Good benefits, retirement, medical, tuition, PTO. If you don't ruffle feathers, you can have a cushy job with a lot of time off and great benefits for life. Pretty facade (campus) and no stinting on technology.

    Cons

    One of the most intolerant, reactionary, opaque workplaces I have ever encountered. President drives the fear-based culture but if you're on his good side, you can prosper. A"friends and family" club of long-term insiders, many of whom are promoted way beyond their capacity or merit, and line their pockets handsomely at the expense of the little people (staff, hourly, adjuncts). Board is mesmerized by Lahey and doesn't look closely enough. Cult-like loyalty and fear abounds in the ranks. Many "institutes" sound good but look under the surface and you will find they are only one or two people. So much at QU is a mile wide and an inch deep. Lip service only for diversity. Bait and switch on budget is frequent. Don't count on anything bring what it appears.

    Advice to Management

    The President and many of his reports need to retire (25+ yrs for anyone in a job is way too long), and the Board should open the windows and let new thinking in. Bring in competent people who may challenge the embedded thinking and aren't "yes-men/women." Transparency and sunlight are better than the smoke and mirrors of promotion that have long ruled QU. Stop patronizing the people who make this place succeed - it's not all top-down, it's bottom-up as well. Be honest and appreciate them.

    I have been working at Quinnipiac University part-time

    Pros

    Very Flexible schedule, nice people, good hours, OK pay, management is good at helping you have time off during emergencies or sick time. If you are a night time owl this job is perfect for you.

    Cons

    Some times we have days or weeks off, can not go above 19.5 hours or 1,000hrs in a year, have to get use to people yelling at you on the phone (this job does teach patience however). There are not a lot of opportunities to go up in the Institute.

    Advice to Management

    To give the employees enough notice when we have days/weeks off. To up our pay so that the job can still be competitive with the rest of the jobs that are close to minimum wage. Never have meet the CEO John L. Lahney.
