    I have been working at Rider University part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Warm, welcoming environment. Friendly co-workers. Helpful support services.

    Cons

    It's not really a "con," but the university could do a better job of making the adjuncts feel more connected and included in the day-to-day operations and activities on campus, especially those of us who teach night courses.

    Advice to Management

    See the "Cons" section.

    I worked at Rider University full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Excellent faculty and the school provides a worthwhile education. Tuition rates are competitive for students. Excellent tuition remission program for eligible employees and their families.

    Cons

    The school is in financial turmoil....has been for several years. The impact on employees has been significant - cuts to benefits, salaries, hiring freezes. Top administrators make high six figure salaries while under performing. Not a great place to work.

    I worked at Rider University full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    My fellow co workers were great to work with and I loved the fact that we could all get stuff done as a team when we needed to and also were able to work on our own as much as possible as well. We were a well balanced team.

    Cons

    The management was a little too fond of playing the favorites game. It was very obvious who they liked more than others. They would see several employees do the same things and certain ones could get away with it while other would be reprimanded. Even if it was a first time offense and I found that to be very unfair. They also underpaid me in my job area even though i have over 10yrs experience, buty would pay someone more who never did the job before

    Advice to Management

    Treat all of your employees equally. Realize when youre being too hard for no reason or unfair. Dont be so negligent to the medical needs of your employees and don discriminate against them for it either.

    Pros

    An absolutely amazing job where you have great bosses and flexible hours. I get to showcase the school that I love

    Cons

    There are no real cons to this job. It is a great place to work at to be all of the time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. The ship, as far as I can see, runs smoothly.

    Pros

    Great benefits, not a corporate environment, excellent at retaining employees, excellent time off in addition to already great time off - week off between Christmas and new years, great summer hours

    Cons

    Rider is a great place to work if you have the opportunity, the things that weren't good for me had to do with me rather than Rider.

    Pros

    You get to meet great people through all of the external events that are held on campus. Great boss and Auxiliary Services team staff.

    Lots of down time, can be boring Must be willing to work in all kinds of weather. You have to be customer services oriented, otherwise all of the angry parents that show up to camps and tournaments will upset you.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to management is to keep things updated and if a change is necessary to make things run more smoothly than do it. In order to succeed in this world, we must keep things constantly changing.
