    I worked at University of Dayton part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The atmosphere on campus is warm and inviting, and everyone I interacted with, from other employees to students, was welcoming and friendly. The people make it a great place to work and to go to school!

    Cons

    Most jobs are for students and are minimum wage. It can be hard to get a job without knowing someone who already works there There doesn't seem to be much room for career growth for jobs as students.

    Advice to Management

    I rarely interacted with management, so it would be great if they were more of a presence.

    I have been working at University of Dayton full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits package
    HR
    Welcoming atmosphere
    Beautiful campus
    Principles-first administration

    Cons

    Pay
    Career advancement opportunities for staff
    Disconnect (relative) between engineering, sciences, and surrounding resources

    Advice to Management

    Provide direct pathways for career advancement for research staff between science, engineering, University of Dayton Research Institute, and Wright Patterson Airforce Base, and closely associated companies such as UES. In other words, there should be a mechanism where I do not have to do all the legwork myself to set up networking with people at these locations if I already work here.

    I have been working at University of Dayton full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The work is quite interesting, there are many areas to work in, the people are fantastic, management structure (at least at the Research Institute) is very flat and management is actively working on projects, benefits are the best I have ever seen, they truly care about your family life (great work-life balance)

    Cons

    Salary is low, feast-or-famine as far as work goes (that's the nature of research though)

    Advice to Management

    Raise your employee's salaries some. Otherwise, keep doing what you are doing!

    I worked at University of Dayton full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people there are very helpful and share insight as to the best ways to complete tasks. The staff was friendly and utilized a great mix or "work" and "play" when it came time for breaks.

    Cons

    The long hours and the distance I had to walk from my car to the building. Also the elevators rarely worked and were constantly trapping people in them.
