One of the worst universities to work for
Lecturer (Former Employee) –  Durham, NHMarch 11, 2018
If you are considering a teaching position at the University of New Hampshire, please take a minute and think twice. Unless you want to use this place as a stepping stone on your way to something bigger and better, save your soul the damage you may be subjecting it to. They will suck your blood dry, use you to the max, and show you no reward or appreciation for all your hard work. They have one of the most corporate mentality ever, so much so that it's hard to remember at times you're working for an educational institution. The students and faculty are at the bottom of their priority list. Not once in my long years of service here have I witnessed a gesture from the Administration of showing respect, or expressing how much they value their students and faculty. Everything they do revolves around money. Money is never spent on things that benefit the faculty and students, but on beautifying buildings, stadiums, falsely improving their ratings, and increasing their own salaries.The most incompetent and heartless management, from the bottom and all the way up, that you can ever imagine. And forget about job security. You go on doing the very best job anyone can do, spend all your time perfecting your teaching, loving and caring for your students as though they were your own, and your overall performance is nothing short of pure perfection. But instead of a reward, you can wake up one day, and you will have lost your job without as much as an explanation. So, please run. You deserve better than working for UNH.
Cons
terrible management

University of New Hampshire, Durham
Administrator (Former Employee) –  UNH DurhamFebruary 16, 2018
Were it not for the 403B, zero stars might be more appropriate. After 15 years of working at UNH, I left making only about $5,000 more per year than when I started. The benefits are decent: health insurance, 403B with a healthy employer contribution, as well as a tuition waiver, which counts as a benefit only if your employer allows you time off to attend classes (that is the exception, not the rule--no matter what they claim). Wages are not competitive at all and the management style leaves a lot to be desired. Upper management is teeming with bullies and micromanagers and corporate types who only care about the bottom line. The workload is such that there isn't enough time in the day to complete everything. Management actively discourages comp time and refuses to pay overtime, so if you get behind, you really have no choice but to work longer hours on your own time if you don't wish to be frazzled all the time. They won't compensate accordingly nor hire auxiliary staff to help. Most of the faculty are rude and condescending. They treat staff like untouchables. I got out in the nick of time since the caliber of student had been on the decline. That bar was lowered the minute UNH placed more emphasis on tuition dollars rather than the quality of the degree.
Pros
Benefits seem more or less equitable.
Cons
The culture is terrible (poor work-life balance), pay is abysmal, and the line is very clear between the haves and the have nots.

For a person entering UNH pay attention to next step
Information Technology Specialist (Former Employee) –  Durham, NHMay 7, 2017
UNH can be a rewarding place to work and also a frustrating place to work. Lots of great people but job movement can be glacial. It pays to make a plan if you intend to stay and map out a strategy. Make sure you can make use of the tuition benefit - not all departments let staff take courses during work. But the education benefit translates to night programs at GSC and even PSU or UNHM. Upper level management is out of touch with staff and while the student needs are central to most operations there is latitude in doing the right thing - in most cases. So if you work with students, learn the boundaries first!
Lots of folks stay here a long time which speaks to the good. But don't let it discourage you if this is your dream job.
Pros
Good health insurance; good retirement contribuition; great education benefits
Cons
promotion in most areas doesn't exist; raises can be very slow in coming

GSC - Great work Great People
Full Time Faculty (Current Employee) –  Granite State CollegeJanuary 25, 2017
USNH includes so many "employers" Granite State College is small and has an excellent workplace culture. There is respect and collegiality among the teams. Nursing is probably a bit isolated from much of the rest of the college - but it is fully accredited and has a strong RN to BSN curriculum.
Pros
Located in Concord, NH - no hassle parking - great people - great retirement.
Cons
Insurance expensive but very comprehensive. Choice available.

Great job, horrible management
Former employee (Former Employee) –  Keene, NHMay 27, 2016
This is the best job with the worst boss. You will be micromanaged to death. And don't say anything to offend the students even if they deserve it. Great pay and benefits, but it doesn't seem worth the aggrivation.
Pros
Good pay and benefits
Cons
Horrible management, No advancement.

A wonderful place to work
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Keene, NHOctober 30, 2015
Many people work very hard to give the best service they had and they do it year after year. It's also wonderful to see the growth in many students over the course of their stay here at KSC.
