    I have been working at Robert Morris University - Pennsylvania full-time (More than 8 years)

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work on the new performance development process that encourages managers and employees to talk more and drive high performance. Thank goodness the rating system has been minimized.... it forces managers to write narrative about their employees' performance as opposed to hiding behind or inflating their ratings.

    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.

    I have been working at Robert Morris University - Pennsylvania full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The students will always be the best part of working at a University. I love to see them grow and graduate. There are a lot of good programs here to make sure they graduate with diverse experiences.

    Cons

    There is no chance for advancement here. You work hard for very small incremental raises. There seems to be no sense of urgency to care to do what it takes to retain good workers.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees more listen to their suggestions and thoughts. Students stay where they fill welcome and accepted and so do good employees. Provide incentives for good workers that push them to reach pass daily goals. It is hard to stay motivated in an environment you see as temporary.

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

    Pros

    They have a very nice and scenic campus.

    Cons

    Very political organization and if you are with the "in crowd" they will make your life miserable and/or not renew your contract.

    The higher ups have a very stodgy, outdated attitude and insist on imposing their will on others, especially full time faculty. Those that are part time may not get to see what these cretins are really like.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up and treat employees with respect and like adults. Stop playing political games.
