    I have been working at Saint Mary's University (Texas) (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The culture at St. Mary's is one that cares for and educates students to be leaders in the common good. Every staff and faculty member is dedicated to the mission of graduating students to be leaders in society. It is laid back, and the Marianist give a lot of support to students, staff, and faculty.

    Cons

    It is a small environment in which there is little room to move upwards. The institution also lack adequate training for directors and managers.

    Advice to Management

    Train and coach your managers to be effective at encouraging staff. The work can be long and grueling, be flexible!

    Pros

    The close knit community was nice. I enjoyed being able to help students.

    Cons

    The pay was much lower compared to other educational institutions. It was also difficult to make changes within the department due long-lasting procedures, even if they were not the most efficient, & comfortability of the people higher up.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Saint Mary's University (Texas) full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    No Pros, they discriminate between faculty members

    Cons

    This is a degree mill. Unless you are from San Antonio or you have graduated from UTHSCSA or UTSA, this place is graveyard. You cannot do independent research. All you will do is tie up your PhD or postdoc advisor at UTSA and UTHSCSA , well you cannnot be independent then

    Advice to Management

    They know everything but this is the way they run a degree mill. They admit illegal DACA students, they admit students from middle-east who get kicked out from UTSA

    Pros

    Very Welcoming people to work with - diligent about making the mission part of the work and student experience

    Cons

    It is a College - so things move at a very deliberate pace. St. Mary's is not as engaged as they would like to be in getting their mission into where they live - but they try very hard

    Advice to Management

    Not to be so hierarchical - but then a gain it is a catholic college
