    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 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.

    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

    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?

    Walsh is a family-friendly environment. They are flexible when it comes to family commitments. People are friendly. Will feel like you are making a differnce

    Cons

    The pay is not as competitive as other universities. Time frame for advancement is slow. Not much job growth.

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

    Pros

    University has experienced tremendous growth over the last decade. There are significant projects secured to support the institution's continuous expansion. That translates into a variety of opportunities for current and new hires.

    Cons

    University has a hard time reconciling catholic identity and traditions with some of the realities of higher-education. Employees that are not aligned with the University culture will have a hard time fitting in (and staying).

    Advice to Management

    Embrace and promote diversity. Some see the catholic tradition as an impediment to do so.
