    I worked at Spring Hill College full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Wonderful students, any employee that has been there longer than 3 years, and a fantastic mission.

    Cons

    Horrifying financial management, toxic work environment, increasing expectations with decreasing compensation, a complete lack of trust between management and faculty/staff, every step forward will be met with three steps back. The school will most likely not survive the next round of SACCS accreditation.

    Advice to Management

    Get your heads out of your butts and listen to your constituents.

    I have been working at Spring Hill College full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Nice people and and beautiful campus

    Cons

    This place is hanging on my a financial thread. The endowment is nearly depleted, the embarrassingly low salaries are flat, enrollments keep falling, and now the our College has stopped contributing to employees' 401k retirement. Essentially everyone not on the verge of retiring is looking for a new job. If the college is still open in five years it will be a miracle.

    Advice to Management

    Put together good severance packages. You will be needing them.

  6. "Great community, lots of instability, lack of money"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at Spring Hill College full-time

    Pros

    - The community is pretty amazing and unlike any other work environment - Benefits are decent - Wonderful students - Despite the cons, most departments work very hard to ensure the students have a great educational environment - 37.5 hour weeks for FTE

    Cons

    - Severe lack of opportunities for professional development - Uncertain future related to finances and accreditation - TONS of turnover - Departments can't really afford to update any of their equipment or processes - Lack of transparency regarding status of the school's finances and other issues - Pay is terrible, even for a higher education institution

    Advice to Management

    Work on reducing turnover. It only makes the institution more unstable.

    Pros

    I have worked many different places. The employees and upper levels of the administration are wonderful. They are kind, generous and decent people. Spring Hill College also has a beautiful campus. I feel that I am needed and appreciated here.

    Cons

    Spring Hill College is going through some changes right now. Change is hard, but I think it will be good for the College's future.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to make the decisions that you know are good for the long-term success of Spring Hill College--manage based on "realities" and not on "hopes".

    "Jesuit College of the South"

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I have been working at Spring Hill College full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Meaningful opportunity for those with a sound work ethic to make a difference at a small liberal arts college. Closest co-worker came from industry sector and very much appreciates benefits such as paid vacation, a ton of paid holidays, paid sick leave, tax sheltering options, free parking, etc. Though just now started contributing toward own comprehensive health and dental coverage, contribution is only about... half that paid by nonsmoking friends working at the huge public university right down the road.

    Cons

    Downside of a gorgeous campus is remaining aware of walkers, joggers, and bikers from the neighborhood preferring to do their thing in the middle of our roads!

    Advice to Management

    Continue, e.g., Open Forum dialogue.

    I have been working at Spring Hill College for more than 3 years

    Pros

    If you can manage to find the right people, they make your time at the college 100% worth it. The benefits package was truly top notch - until they took away retirement contribution matching and made everyone's medical coverage HDHP. Students get an amazing education. The faculty spends so much time developing an immersive curriculum that teaches valuable life lessons. Staff and faculty alike care immensely for... the well-being and development of students.

    Cons

    Weak management from soup to nuts. Miscommunication on all levels, there is a strange element of "secrecy" from upper admin. Financial stability is nonexistent. This school was released from probation with SACS by divine mercy; definitely not because of financial improvement. A majority of the power lies within the hands of a small handful of people, who withhold information from the President and Board, who... think that everyone loves working at Spring Hill. If there is an issue the Vice Presidents run and cry to the President at the drop of a hat. Enrollment is steadily decreasing despite what they tell prospective employees and current employees at assemblies. Not one person in power wants to be held accountable for mistakes (including SACS probation). Everything is always someone else to blame for the College's problems. There is no trust on the most basic of levels. Supervisors log into their supervisees email accounts and look for gossip and reasons to let people go.

    Advice to Management

    Start comparing what the Board and President think they know and what people out doing the work experience on a daily basis. There will undoubtedly be a large number of inconsistencies. When a majority of the financial problems can be traced to one individual, look and see who that person's closest friends are. Lots of covering up and behind-closed-doors collusion takes place in order to protect people from change... -- at anyone's expense.
