    I worked at St. Mary's College of California

    Pros

    It's a beautiful campus nestled in the foothills of Moraga.

    Cons

    They're going through downsizing, and I am abhorred at the favoritism put into the decision to lay off certain employees. Essentially, people who have spoken up against poor and illegal business practices were targeted to be laid off. Any talented staff they were able to recruit in the past decade are now jumping ship. There are a lot of "lifers" who remain because they are taking advantage of the tuition free benefit for their kids, which obviously leaves the college with a very limited talent pool and lack of diversity. Speaking of diversity - do not ignore the reviews where staff or faculty have felt discriminated against. It is a problem, mostly based out of ignorance and a lack of experience from people who have only worked in the affluent area of Moraga. This problem is more prevalent among faculty who are not trained in HR policy, but believe they can manage or lead people because they have done alright in a classroom. HR does little to step in to fix this problem amongst faculty because of the tenure they carry in senior management positions.

    Pros

    Beautiful campus and environment. Most staff and faculty are pleasant people to work with.

    Compensation is way too low to sustain career employees. Tradition in the way of progress and communication is lacking. Too many silos and political agendas.

    I worked at St. Mary's College of California full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Beautiful campus. Easy commute. Tuition benefits.

    Cons

    Insular. Many of the staff are lifers, who went to the College and then returned to work there. Not much diversity in thought. Staff are the lowest of the low-- last to be consulted. Apparently working there is supposed to be such a gift that you should just be thrilled for whatever crumbs you get.
