    Pros

    Great pay! The best part was that as a private instructor you are able to make your own schedule which makes your work/life balance so much easier! If you enjoy working with kids this is a great job for you. Overall a positive work environment.

    Cons

    None that truly negatively impacted me or my view of working there. Sometimes the parents of the kids you coach can be difficult but that is because their child is their main priority and most parents want their kid to be the best. Just treat them with respect and smiles help!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, it's working great. I have always thought that it would be a good idea to complete background checks and administer drug tests to the instructors since they are working with young children.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Robert Morris University - Pennsylvania part-time

    Pros

    The staff and students were very friendly and easy to work with. I never had a day that I was stressed out because of my fellow colleagues.

    Cons

    If you are not aware of the different language barriers, it can be a trying experience to convey important information regarding a student's status for both internationals and study abroad students.

    Great people. Flexible work hours.

    Work can be stressful with no benefits or pay raises. Hard to get an answer from anyone.

    Get more involved. Know how to use systems better than employees.

    I worked at Robert Morris University - Pennsylvania full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Most employees genuinely want to help students. Friendly culture. Safe attractive campus. Wide variety of students.

    Cons

    Salaries for rank and file professionals below average. Opportunities to advance and new ideas are blocked by those who have been here for years and not going anywhere. Benefits seem to be going away. Retirement shifted to an underperforming provider. Health benefits slashed to only high deductible. Strategic spending doesn't seem to make sense when they just laid off 40. VPs are too chummy and make too much in bonuses given our sliding metrics and rankings. University aggressively recruits students of modest incomes but doesn't provide need-based aid so students are constantly under stress about how to pay tuition bills.

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate lavish VP bonuses. Find ways to support and keep employees who want to work there. Do less flashy podium talking and more listening.

    Pros

    I learned a lot and enjoyed the family atmosphere there. Everyone wanted me to succeed and further my knowledge in the field.

    Cons

    It is a smaller environment so everyone knows about everyone. It's something I enjoyed but is definitely not for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. Give more rewards and compensation.
