Good enough work environment, bad benefits and pay
The work environment at HPU isn't stellar, nor is it horrific. I've found that it's comparable to most other university work places. However, compared to the previous college I worked for, the pay and benefits at HPU are sub-par. HPU (which is located in one of the most expensive locations in the United States) pays me, roughly, half of the average salary for my position. They also are stingy with their retirement and health benefits. They also charge employees for parking at their Kaneohe campus, and don't offer parking facilities at their new Honolulu campus (one bulletin the university sent out basically stated that employees will have to use public transportation once the Kaneohe campus is close in 2021). HPU is also very administrator heavy, with the university having 11 vice-presidents all making north of 100k a year.
