Great sense of community, low pay

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Marywood has a great sense of community amongst staff members. It is a great place to work. The only downfall is the pay because it is a private school the pay is rather low. But I didn't get into my job for the money, I got in it to help students reach their goals.

Poor leadership created a bad work environment.

I would not recommend working here. Leadership has made a bunch of bad decisions that has caused financial challenges. It is low pay. There has been 1 raise in 10 years. There is no job security because they are always cutting costs. They are also outsourcing different functions. They are now offering buyouts.


The people are friendly and helpful


Heavy workload, low pay, no support from senior leadership.

Good students, Frustrated Faculty, Low Pay

I worked as an adjunct at Marywood. The class I taught was great, most of the students were upbeat and dedicated. Among the faculty, there was the sense that things were failing overall. Everyone seemed frustrated and like they couldn't wait to retire.The pay was awful. I've been paid better for adjunct positions at other colleges. Although I enjoyed teaching the students, the general spirit of dissatisfaction and the pay do not make it worth it.

Wonderful people to work with

There is limited room to grow at Marywood. Compensation is not good. Benefits, if you utilize it all is worth it. Great people as co-workers.

Incompetent executive management.

Zero transparency, and disingenuous management. A culture of snitches, with the goal of staying in the good graces of the President. A revolving door of staff. Many outstanding faculty have left due to the inept leadership of current and past Provosts. All staff feel constant stress of impending termination due to financial distress. Uneven and poorly communicated COVID action plan.


Leaving campus.


Poor support staff compensation, steadily decreasing benefits, and a culture of fear and doubt.

Top heavy and poor Administration

They are too top heavy and reward incompetent people with promotions while those that are competent are pooped on. Good place for politicians to work because they like to be told what they want to hear rather then the truth.

Management and co-workers made the workplace feel like home

Marywood University is a great place to work if you are interested in being part of a university staff. I made many friends and had very positive work experiences while working at Marywood. The university has a great security team to keep students and staff members safe. I felt I could connect easily and relate well with virtually everyone with whom I worked.


Positive, friendly work atmosphere.

Very welcoming University

The professors on the social work department are great along with career advisement. Always something to do on campus but tuition is a bit pricey. Great school.

Good- Freedom to be creative and to my potential.

Interviews, counseling,acceptance, students into the University. To be a great listener, patience, to be consistent and that each student was unique and special. My style is unique and creative. I see each situation special no matter what their ethnicity are. The hardest part was not being able to help all the students reach their goals. Most enjoyable, that students reac their goals

This job is the worst.

Low pay, inept management, understaffing, you name it about this place. Good employees get hounded while bad ones get rewarded. The only great thing about the place were my coworkers.

It was a work study.

No issues at all. I was a professional note taker. I would simply turn in my notes. I would get paid depending on how long it took me to write the notes. It was pretty good deal considering it was something I would have been doing anyway.

Fun and educational

Position allows me to focus on school work when necessary. I enjoy learning new things from the professor and technician of the sculpture studio. Very relaxed work environment.

Downward spiral

This used to be a good university. It has had and continues to have enormous financial problems. The administration is grossly incompetent. Most major administrative positions from president, to provost to deans. HR, admissions etc. seem to turn over every 2 to 3 years. Endless chaos...

Marywood was a great university to attend. They provided the necessary education and extra curricular activities to stay motivated throughout my tenure here.
