    Pros

    The work isn't particularly hard, primarily because you are likely one of the most qualified people doing it

    Cons

    The school scales really poorly- things handled across multiple departments don't get done in a coherent fashion

    Advice to Management

    Not enough is done to help the student employees network for when they graduate, particularly because they don't get paid nearly what they deserve

  2. Not too bad

    Pros

    great benefits especially for those hoping to return to school, was often a very relaxing and comfortable work environment, great work environment for current students, great place to network

    Cons

    Sometimes the environment can be boring, depending on your department the stress level might be higher, not the best place for career advancement, some of the students you may encounter come from privilege and feel entitled

  3. My experiences have been good and ok.

    Pros

    The tuition benefits is a big pro and you have the days off between Christmas and New Years

    Cons

    If you want to move up you have to move to another department for increase in pay and/or title

    Advice to Management

    Remember the Jesuit traditions that is about the whole person and not one specific thing

    Pros

    There is alot of job security but vertical promotion isn't likely since no one gets fired. This place provides alot of opportunity for networking. Also if you work long enough Georgetown will help with your tuition at Georgetown.

    Cons

    Promotions are not likely and there is a lot of red tape to achieve anything. Also most people don't stay long because after they're tuition is paid they move on to other opportunities. Which makes progress difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees more autonomy they're smart.

    Pros

    Working with Georgetown students is a pleasure: intelligent, motivated and enthusiastic.

    Cons

    Subpar benefits and salary freeze are non competitive.

    Advice to Management

    I had an excellent experience with my manager.

    Pros

    Many supervisors are supportive and generally good people. People stay a long time. Great benefits. The stress isn't too bad.

    Cons

    Money is tight (maybe because the Medical Center keeps losing money?). Annual salary increases don't even match inflation. They tried to do away with raises completely a little while back, but caved after a big uproar. Some administrative offices are dysfunctional, either because they're understaffed or because their underpaid employees don't care.
