    I worked at Robert Morris University - Pennsylvania full-time

    Pros

    Only pro is that there aren’t even more cons.

    Cons

    The president of the university only cares about money, even though the school is running out of it anyway. Academics are getting worse by the semester and students have been complaining about not getting what they’re paying for for over a decade now with no changes to the school ever happening. Hopefully Pitt just buys RMU because they are probably not going to last very much monger.

    I have been working at Robert Morris University - Pennsylvania full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Typical pros of working at a university: nice setting, decent benefits, tuition waiver, coworkers passionate about their work, and having a relationship with students and alumni.

    Cons

    Salaries for staff are low. Strategic direction doesn't focus on students. Staff haven't had a raise in a couple years and the last one was just 1%. Benefits have been reduced. Very limited room to grow and develop - a log jam of boomers and older Gen Xers at the Director level and above who aren't looking to move up or out keeps younger and/or hungry staff stifled. VPs get paid nice bonuses when nobody else gets one (that's not usually a thing at universities)

    Pros

    Big enough to matter, small enough to care. At RMU, employees have the opportunity to get involved in a wide variety of projects that better the University. The organizations is always looking to improve what is currently being done. Very student centered. No matter what job or department, we are all here for the students and that is a good feeling!

    Cons

    Parking during the academic year can be tight. Some of the buildings are old and run-down. Similar to many historical college campuses.

    Pros

    Great benefits. (If you can get full time and you have kids going to college. ) People are terrific.

    Cons

    Benefits only for full time people. Employee review process is pointless, and it looks like they are going to make iteven more pointless. Hard work will not get you ahead.
