    Pros

    It is a well-run University. The students are respectful and study hard, collegiality is high, freedom in pursuing your ideas is great.

    Cons

    I am rather unhappy with the dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. The overall administrative structure, and with that a lot of wasted resources, has ballooned over the last 30 years

    Advice to Management

    cut some administrative positions

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

    Pros

    Considerate, dedicated Villanova Family produced award-winning results in the most wired campus. I enjoyed working here, and often stayed in the lab much longer in order to study and learn new software in order to implement the very best work. The results were rewarding, and I was later able to create my own web page in my spare time on weekends.

    Cons

    This position only offered while a student.

    The people are great. On campus work means that you do not need a car or other transportation. Flexible hours. Get to meet other professors and networking contacts.

    Pros

    Very flexible, very good work life balance. if you have college bound kids who are interested in going to VU, it will be well worth it
