    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    The higher ups have a very stodgy, outdated attitude and insist on imposing their will on others, especially full time faculty.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.

    I worked at Robert Morris University - Pennsylvania full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nice place to work. The benefits as an employee are extremely helpful. You can take advantage of discounted education costs for yourself and children. There will usually be opportunities to grow as well. The quality of your experience will always depend on the people you are reporting to. There are many great people/leaders at the university but there are some that are very poor. Your experience will really depend on your department and supervisor.

    Cons

    There are many politics so you must be prepared. The pay is not always the best since they try to leverage some of the additional benefits you receive when working at the institution.
