    Solid returning student base; appreciative management; opportunities to coordinate between academic departments; great work/life/study balance.

    I worked at St. Francis College

    Pros

    Small work environment where you are able to build relationships.

    Micromanaging, low pay, and high stress. Management doesn’t support you and you are overworked for a low wage.

    I worked at St. Francis College full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Time off and Fridays in the summer

    Cons

    The president of the college has been there for almost a year and has sucked the board dry in terms of getting funding to support his goals. So many of my colleagues have left in the last year. Too much turn around. I decided to leave in the early winter because things seemed to be changing too quickly. It's a shame that I used to love working for the college because of the family like feel only to be told that your role...

    I have been working at St. Francis College full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Time off is about the only thing, anymore.

    Cons

    Although the school seems to be changing direction, the new president continues to talk about "investing" in the college and it's workers. However, the chairman of the board just sent an email about how no raises will be given this year and instead, a small lump sum of $1000 will be given instead. This institution notoriously under pays (most starting salaries are ~35k for entry level) it's employees at most levels...

    Advice to Management

    Your employees will give what they get. If you truly want your employees to invest themselves in making the college great again, then you need to invest in your employees and pay a liveable wage. Cut out the dead leaves at the top of the tree (ESPECIALLY the degree-unqualified employees at the higher levels) and promote those with the skills and passion to do the job well.

    I have been working at St. Francis College full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Small classes, tons of activities and guest speakers

    Cons

    Street parking is available, sometimes but not guaranteed.

    Advice to Management

    For those employees and students who need to drive, perhaps working out a partnership with local parking lots would be advantageous.
