    I worked at University of New England full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits, particularly leave time, retirement match, and HSA/health care. Friendly co-workers.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, working at UNE gradually has become extremely toxic. There is a severe lack of accountability among leaders-- employees that have a lot to offer and try to help turn things around are treated as less-than and of low value. As a result, those in charge are given the power to make high level decisions but lack the competence or understanding to do so in a productive and smart way. Simply put-- certain areas of UNE are being run into the ground. Employee turnover is a problem that is so incredibly evident it is hard to understand why nothing is being done to try to address the growing problem (which not only affects faculty/staff, but students too!).

    I worked at University of New England full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    UNE offers great benefits, 403b match and vacation time are great. Health insurance is good.

    Cons

    University leadership is turning a blind eye to incompetent College-level leaders. The (former) fastest growth college is currently being run into the ground due to poor leadership decisions. Bullying and bad behavior is allowed to flourish, as conflict is avoided at all costs by upper management. There is no accountability. Staff are not given any professional development, nor are they respected for their contributions. Positions are currently being cut, with the expectation that others will absorb the work. College leaders are tone deaf and ignorant to the current culture, which erodes more and more each day. College leaders have no self awareness that they are the problem.

    "Lots of Potential, But Management Issues"

    2.0
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Director 

    I worked at University of New England full-time

    Pros

    Allowed staff to work autonomously, great benefits, beautiful campus

    Cons

    I was hoping that a change of president and a few years would have helped the management situation somewhat, but after reading a recent review by someone whose experience mirrored my own (several years ago), I see that not much has changed. The lack of communication with and compassion for staff - especially when programs are abruptly shut down - is astounding. The students suffer as well when programs or services are eliminated without concern for their well-being. For a supposedly innovative, forward-thinking institution, it is sadly run on a fire-fighting basis, where cuts are regularly made to put a bandaid on a leaking budget.

    Pros

    great medical benefits and vacation time,

    Cons

    Employees will need the benefits due to the lack of professionalism, stress from micro-management, cat and mouse games with expectations, favoritism, and passive- aggressive harassment management style. This is not a humanistic environment.
