Good University

High-quality education provider. Weak work-life balance and poor benefits. However, health insurance provided was one of the best in the US. Overall management is not on the top.

Good flexibility for a full-time student
Coordinating Clerk/Assistant (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PANovember 9, 2018
Overall, working at a regulatory office at Temple was a fairly enjoyable job. I was able to learn more about the various research studies that are conducted on Temple's campus and to learn more about the regulatory side of things. A typical day at work involved the copying and scanning of meeting documents and email communication with Project Investigators. Meeting preparation included communicating with PIs and their laboratory staff about certification requirements, assembling packets of paper meeting materials for members, and posting of electronic meeting packets on Blackboard.
Pros
Courteous boss and co-workers
Cons
No opportunity for advancement or pay raise, organizational problems between offices

Great Compensation
Lead Administrative Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAJuly 18, 2018
It was a great place to work with career advancement if you worked hard. I believe that compensation was fair, but management was not organized and little to no communication.

Exciting place to work!
Office Supervisor II (Current Employee) –  1801 North Broad Street Rm 103 Conwell HallJanuary 10, 2019
As a working supervisor, my typical day was to instruct co-workers and temps on distribution of the documents that came in the mail.
My duties also included receiving and posting checks, sending out correspondence when necessary to parents of students applying to Temple University as well as taking calls from parents and prospective students. I learned that patience is golden. My title is Office supervisor ll. I worked with upper management on work assignments for myself and staff. The workplace culture can be stressful due to many different personalities that have been on the job 25 or more years. The hardest part of the job is supervising people that was on the job before me. The most enjoyable part of the job was be able to get my education in social work.

Relaxed environment with many avenues for learning
Assistant Director, Information Security (Current Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAMarch 5, 2018
A typical day at Temple University is busy without being overbearing. The culture is relaxed and collaborative. This is fostered by the management style typically being one of oversight and delegation which reduces micromanagement to a minimum. The most difficult part of the job is keeping up with the changes in the industries that drive Information Technology and most enjoyable part of the job is the interaction with coworkers at all levels of the organization, from the President to the cleaning staff. Over the years, there have been many valuable lessons learned at Temple, but the ones which come to mind most often are learning to manage a wide range of people and also always having a plan in place for dealing with disasters and security breaches.
Pros
Excellent benefits, relaxed and collaborative environment
Cons
Narrow opportunity for advancement

Director Finance/Accounts Payable (Current Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAMarch 13, 2018
Great people throughout the University. Right now my department is under staffed which is the reason for working the longer hours. Once the department is fully staffed the work hours will resume to normal hours. Also, we are implementing Concur Invoicing and once the system is up and running we will be the best of the best in Accounts Payable. Very excited about this project.

Low to Medium Pay. However, the benefits are awesome. Free tuition for children
