    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere, supportive colleagues, "takes a village" mentality. Evident that faculty and staff believe in the College and have a true desire to see her grow.

    Cons

    Cultural opportunities are lacking in the small host town. Could use other food options. Also, city could be more diligent in dealing with blight.

    Advice to Management

    Recruiting and retaining qualified faculty and staff seems difficult based on location of the school. Consider these challenges when establishing compensation and benefits packages.

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere. They'd bring in snacks for staff and the company Benson-Technology that they brought in that ran everything smoothly.

    Cons

    They had you call alumni who graduated the previous year (most likely people who weren't in a position to donate) as well as parents of currently enrolled students.

    Pros

    I love working for Albion College because it is a fun atmosphere focused on academic and personal growth. The schedule flexibility always been great in the part-time positions I have held, and I think you will find that no matter which department on campus you find yourself working.

    Cons

    I have seen some cases of poor leadership in those fulfilling authority positions. There are also cases of unprofessionalism in which issues are not confronted directly by those in charge and are instead addressed through passive agressive methods.

    Advice to Management

    Be more selective in choosing those in supervisor roles, or offer training to make sure supervisors interact with student workers professionally.

    Pros

    The people you work with are fantastic, understanding, demanding, and fair. I would be more than happy to go back and work there.

    Cons

    Not too many cons at all. The hours were sometimes erratic, but it is what you sign up for when you apply for the job.
