    I worked at Walsh University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They match your retirement savings very generously, the campus is beautiful and the holiday parties are fun. You can get tuition benefit after 30 days of employment unless your manager believes they are above the employee handbook and make you wait a year.

    Cons

    Terrible management. HR is completely inaccessible, they pay diddly squat yet require even secretaries to have bachelor degrees. The President hires his friends and family members to make five figure salaries.

    I have been working at Walsh University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    By and large everyone works well together, across departments even, and there is almost a "family" feel that the administration pushes. Very friendly campus. Beautiful scenery. Autonomy in job position. Collaborative. Very student friendly. Given lots of opportunities to do more than just typical work- including volunteer work and event programming

    Cons

    Though the administration speaks on diversity quite a bit, it's as though they seem to think this is exclusive to race. I do not believe the campus has a race issue at all, in fact everyone is very welcoming, If anything more diversity awareness needs to be given in areas like religion and politics. One essentially needs to hide if he/she is an atheist. Also it is very slow moving to try and get a promotion (if it happens at all). No raises given besides a 1% cost of living raise; nothing based on merit.

    Advice to Management

    Value everyone's opinion and input, even those who fall outside Walsh's Catholic identity

    I have been working at Walsh University part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I love my Work Study position here at Walsh University because it allows me to work directly with the Campus Ministry department on campus. The staff and managers are incredible, and there's lots of free food.

    Cons

    The only con to this job is that you get very little hours. That comes with the territory of "work study," but come on, 6 hours a week?

    Advice to Management

    None

    I worked at Walsh University part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The campus is nice. There are some students genuinely interested in learning and/or improving their skills.

    Cons

    Department heads give no goals. Little/no student accountability. No support with students. I refused to continue beyond one semester.

    Advice to Management

    Department heads need to take actual interest in their programs. Create some standards instead of just arbitrary "goals" for courses so students know and can understand what is expected of them. If you hire adjuncts, work with them, don't just leave them out to dry (as I was numerous times) or undermine them behind closed doors.

    Pros

    - Flexible scheduling.
    - Seems like they're trying to install a lot of amenities.
    - Campus is trying to grow and expand.
    - Campus is usually well taken care of and manicured for the most part.
    - Judeo-Christian education.

    Cons

    - Very limited opportunities to gain an internship if you're a student.
    - Everything is overpriced. From the bookstore, the convenience stores, the tuition, and all the student fees. They love to rip off students.
    - Faculty is underpaid.
    - A lot of the department heads come off as snobby.
    - Top Administrators (President, Provost, etc) are generally nowhere to be seen unless there are donors or news media nearby.
    - Career Center is useless. No leads on any potential jobs for students at all.
    - Parking is a nightmare.

    Advice to Management

    Do something to make the things you sell on campus more affordable. 99% of college students are broke.

    Not everything revovles around fundrasing.

    Pros

    I love working for Walsh University. As an intern I am able to have a very flexible schedule while learning about the finance department and the university as a whole.

    Cons

    The only con that I have is that as an intern there is no opportunities currently for me to advance within Walsh. But they have been very supporting with my job hunting efforts.

    Advice to Management

    There are great, hard working leaders at Walsh University

    I have been working at Walsh University part-time

    Pros

    Great college atmosphere. The class curriculum is fairly well developed with some room for classroom innovation. The students are comfortable expressing their thoughts in the classroom. The full time professors are accessible for consultation.

    Cons

    There are few downsides that I can see with this University. I believe that there are some additional majors that can be developed to round out the course offerings.

    Advice to Management

    My experience with management has been great. In the area where I teach, there is an open dialogue with management.
