    I have been working at Saint Louis University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good people work T SLU and the Jesuit value emphasis human dignity.

    Cons

    After 2 years of frozen salaries and frozen hiring, layoffs are coming in the next 3 months. The sad thing is that every area has to take a share of the layoffs, and SLU's financial issues were created by poor judgement at the top levels of management - where there won't be layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Letting staff know that layoffs will come in 3 months time makes everyone miserable and serves no purpose except salving top management's consciences. Get rid of the folks at the top who show poor decision making and leave the poor worker bees who have been loyal and who really do the work of the University alone.

    I have been working at Saint Louis University full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Retirement match – 10% to your max 5% contribution.

    Cons

    Director-level and above, you're golden. Everyone else - the people doing the trench work, your nothing. Your ideas won't matter, you're expendable for someone to do your job cheaper. Layoffs are coming and it's the leanest the organization has ever been. Silly-low pay for busting your tail.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the head off this beast. There's way too many VPs that let their egos get in the way of actually serving the student/clients. Facilities are crumbling for staff, fix them so people aren't sick all the time.
