Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – New York, NY – July 20, 2016
I formerly worked there for over three years in Admissions. I learned a lot but this institution would good after highschool to gain experience while pursuing degree not someone more seasoned. There is no union so if issues arise with management or with others within, you have no protection. The students can be hard at times but they're great overall. Very stressful. Ended up having health issues due to the office atmosphere. If seeking employment, ask all questions about what the job will require daily. Many were tricked with what the job would require in the interview process.
10-12 paid holidays including a week off paid in December

Development Associate (Former Employee) – New York, NY – November 11, 2015
Pace University offered me many opportunities to learn about the development field, build my professional experience and network with influential and successful alumni in the NYC area.
A typical day of work included the daily scheduling of meetings and prospect visits for the VP of Development, reconciling business cards and travel expense forms for the office, organizing office team building activities and the daily prospect management in our development database.
During my time at Pace I learned the importance of promptness and professionalism in the field of development and how important they are to effective fundraising. I also learned how to work as a team player, being a resource for training, assistance and guidance for the new members of our team.
Management struggled to show investment in their employees and during my 2 years at Pace I saw much talent leave. Our office had an average of 1 person leave per month. In the 2 years I was there, 24 colleagues came and went. Much of this turnover was due to a feeling of being unappreciated and undervalued by management.
My co-workers were all wonderful, hardworking and intelligent people. The most enjoyable part of my job was assisting my colleagues with projects large and small, and the natural team building effect this had.
The hardest part of my job was understanding the relationship between myself and our VP of Development, being her primary scheduling assistant, yet not having the access to her that I needed to guide me in making decisions. I was forced to field questions with my direct supervisor,more... the Operations Manager, and ask for her judgement. This was an obstacle that I had learned to manage, but which was a constant source of quite frustration for myself.less
Great benefits, hardworking team, competitive pay
Management, lack of professional development opportunities
