Student Success Advisor (Former Employee) – Saint Davids, PA – July 20, 2018
This is nice place to work, the campus is beautiful, the tuition remission benefit is generous. People are great to work with. The team environments are good. Easy access to public transportation, close to good food places.
Undergraduate Admissions Counselor (Current Employee) – Saint Davids, PA – December 2, 2018
Eastern University is a great entry level place to work. It will get you on your feet and prepare you for the real world. I would not recommend this as a permanent place to work. The people are phenomenal but it is somewhat poorly managed. Still, a good place to work.
Academic Advisor (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – June 6, 2018
There are some great individuals in this institution, however, management and higher up leadership do not have a strategy to move forward. I would not be surprised if this University closes in a couple years.
Loved the department but the college has a fuzzy vision
Adjunct Instructor of Theatre (Former Employee) – St. Davids, PA – February 27, 2018
My department was amazing. Everyone worked really hard and was extremely dedicated to the students. The university on the whole seems to have an unclear vision for the performing arts at the school. Sometimes the division was praised and sometimes they cut whole departments. It was tricky trying to navigate how theatre fit in to a school that was moving away from its Liberal Arts roots and toward a more Science/Business focus.
Productive and rewarding place to work at department level. Very entrepreneurial
Director of Advancement & Administration (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – August 29, 2012
Was a very illuminating experience to be involved with academia having come from a corporate background. Was surprised at the lack of accountability at program level across programs in general and across higher education institutions. Co-workers were great but senior level management had been around a little too long and new ideas and innovation were tough to implement as channels and venues for doing this were limited due to the organizational culture. I learned the value of collegiality and great insight into higher education in general.
limited internal staff development and advancement opportunities
Enrollment (Current Employee) – Saint Davids, PA – November 18, 2014
You really have to take charge of your career; the career progression is not clearly defined. The compensation is low compared to similar positions at larger colleges and universities. Change is very slow, even though there are glaring inefficiencies which can sometimes be a hindrance to progress. The future, however, is looking a little brighter for the first time in a very long time.
Employees go the extra mile to ensure that students have a great experience; that is the pride and joy of working at Eastern. You will be a life changer if you work in the enrollment department, and the people that you work with are some of the best people that you will ever encounter.
ESL Instructor (Former Employee) – Saint Davids, PA – March 6, 2018
The campus in St. Davids, although it became a challenge due to distance from my home, is beautiful. One of the best locations I've ever worked. The faculty and staff of the university as well as the ESL program are dedicated, and good role models.
No raise in 5 years and hard to move up too much expected for the pay
Maintenance (Current Employee) – St. Davids, PA – November 5, 2017
I've work at Eastern university for almost 10 years and in those years things have been going downhill. Management are not totally honest with employees and many things are kept hidden. Too much money is spent on cosmetic upgrades to the university and they try to squeeze every single cent out of the students. Security presence on campus is poor and supervisor is rude to the students.
Friendly students, staff and faculty
Low pay, too much expected, high tuition and student parking
Network and VMware Windows Systems Administrator (Current Employee) – Saint Davids, PA – January 12, 2016
Eastern is a very nice place. The people here are very friendly. However the structure and management of this place is not good. There is no room for growth. Salaries/Compensation is horrible. You do not get salary increases yearly, or bonus's, or cost of living adjustment.
Academy Services Assistant (Former Employee) – St. Davids, PA – January 23, 2018
I was not a permanent employee. I stayed on as an extension from work study. The environment was great and the staff were great. I fell ill and I was unable to stay at the job as long as I had hoped. There also was not a budget to keep me as a full-time employee. However, I recommend working at Eastern University.
Athletic Event Staff Member (Current Employee) – Wayne, PA – December 11, 2017
Even though I am an undergraduate student, I have gotten to work with the athletics department at Eastern University. Eastern University needs to develop better planning and strategies within the athletic department, in order for things to run smoothly.
