    Pros

    Little oversight. Good location and resources for some majors or departments.

    Little oversight, which makes it difficult to know how you will be evaluated. A lot of politics, but not more than any other college.

    I have been working at Nazareth College full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Challenging and engaging environment with a few celebrations throughout the year

    Cons

    Minimal salary increases no matter how good your review is for the year. Poor communication within your own department as well as outside. Working reactively vs proactively no matter how hard you try to avoid it.

    Advice to Management

    Value the staff as much as the faculty. We're the ones who keep the boat afloat. This is why you see the hard workers walking away.

    I worked at Nazareth College full-time

    Pros

    Nazareth -- a small liberal arts college -- was a great place to work for my first full-time job after graduating from university. At least when I was there, I had lots of opportunities to learn from talented colleagues and mentors, relatively generous benefits (retirement, health insurance, vacation and sick time, tuition benefits for yourself and dependents), free parking, and the week between Christmas and New Year's off (paid!).

    Cons

    As is typical of a small-ish non-profit, you end up doing three jobs and being underpaid even for the official one. Similarly, because Nazareth doesn't have tons of money, they often give people fancy titles in lieu of adequate pay. As a result, you have a lot of "directors" who are more or less only directing themselves.

    I worked at Nazareth College full-time

    Pros

    Everyone at Nazareth is kind and friendly, its a welcoming atmosphere and you feel it everywhere you go. There are enough staff hired so that people are not completely swamped and overworked. Tons of cultural events and activities for students and faculty/staff. A place of learning and open dialouge.

    Cons

    Horrible pay, it is not competitive at all and when I worked there in a position that required a bachelors degree I was barely paid enough to afford my one bedroom apartment in the city (not pittsford). Ultimately this is also why I and many others left despite loving my job and the College. Raises are 3% every year but when you are making very little that barely equal 50 cents a year. Really the pay is the only con which is sad because otherwise its a really wonderful place to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Not sure how or where the money is allocated but pay your faculty/staff fair and competetive wages or you will continue to lose good people. Ultimately turn over is a bigger cost to the College than paying a competitive wage.
