    I worked at University of St. Thomas · Minnesota part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It was very convenient given the fact that it was on campus, and flexible with scheduling. Getting a free meal per shift, and working with other students was enjoyable too.

    Cons

    The pay, regardless of how hard you worked was kind of a joke, even for working in a kitchen. You had to put in time, rather than effort.

    Advice to Management

    Incentive bonuses or raises would be nice.

    Pros

    Small private college so real sense of community; my direct report was wonderful to work for and gave me lots of flexibility with the curriculum.

    Cons

    Parking could be challenging; part of me wished I had been given a little more direction for the course structure

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the open environment, small class sizes and bringing in real world adjunct professors to offset the theory classes

    I worked at University of St. Thomas · Minnesota full-time

    Pros

    None. Except most coworkers are nice.

    Cons

    Poor upper management. Extremely poor HR department. Can't name department, or for how long. Forbidden to discuss problems. Wasteful spending. Low pay compared to other companies. Stress. Lots of stress.

    Advice to Management

    If this place cared AT ALL about people and their treatment, they would listen to what is said when they quit or are let go. Problems are never solved there.
