One of the worst universities to work for
Lecturer (Former Employee) – Durham, NH – March 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.
