    I worked at Blackburn College part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The college community is small enough you really can make a difference with your work. Everyone is very polite and the campus as a whole has a very welcoming atmosphere. One on one interaction between students, workers, and professors is a huge plus.
    The work program, overall, provides one with valuable experience.

    Cons

    Management can be extremely poor both in judgement and allocation of resources. Blackburn tends to allocate lots of resources where they shouldn't go and none where they should. Institutional knowledge is lacking and can make working for Blackburn very inefficient because of high worker rollover and poor documentation of processes. Work-Life balance is hellish because work often gets in the way of study time and social time, all of which are very necessary. Don't expect a whole lot of sleep as a student worker if you have a challenging major!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Document, Document, DOCUMENT. Keep the accomplishments of past workers around and have future workers exploit it.
