Benedictine University, Poor University, that cannot compete with neighboring universities.
Anonymous (Former Employee) – Lisle, IL – February 9, 2018
Benedictine University has been struggling to provide a competitive education similar to what is being offered at the neighboring colleges. The buildings are falling apart and living conditions for students is deplorable. Because of the declining condition of the campus, Students are taking their education dollars elsewhere. This problem along with an overall decline in graduating seniors in High Schools, has lead to massive lay off's and zero improvements to the university. Leadership is unresponsive to the needs of the university and the ship is sinking fast without a lifeboat.
The only positive thing about working for the university was the benefits, which included generous paid time off, low cost insurance, and free education for staff and their family.
