    I worked at Ursinus College full-time

    Pros

    Ursinus is a vibrant, friendly community. They are currently in transition as the new president is in his third year and many high-level administrators are new. Over the last several years benefits have been greatly enhanced including vacation time for hourly employees and an active wellness program. 403B match is good and you can't beat the time off. Top-notch IT office and IT support. Students are engaging and bright.

    Cons

    Pay is typically low for hourly and lower-level salaried employees. Many of the seasoned staff are not happy with recent changes and feel that the place is not as family-oriented as it once was or that the new regime "cares" about employees. That is a matter of opinion. Ask different people and you'll get many different answers. Newer employees should have no problems. Some departments have lean staff and work is being distributed among other staff who are not being adequately compensated for taking on additional responsibility. Also, different departments have different sets of issues,both positive and negative.

    Advice to Management

    Take time out of your schedule to get to know a little bit about each of your staff members. If you don't care, pretend to care. This goes a long way to enhance morale and your staff will have more respect for you and in-turn be a better worker. Don't play favorites. This causes divisive among staff, another morale killer.
