    Great opportunity, but is what you make of it

    I worked at Allegheny College full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    This job gives you a rare opportunity to practice walking that thin line between peer and mentor -- something that is incredibly difficult, but a necessary component of life.

    Cons

    This is unavoidable, but you will have to be responsible for grown adults who should be responsible for themselves. As a result, I think a lot of people get burnt out doing this kind of work.

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

    Pros

    Lots of support, great team, fun work environment. Getting time off was pretty easy and the people were understanding. The compensation wasn't high but I loved what I was doing and who I was working with.

    Cons

    My boss was great but some of the surrounding ones were not. Some of the people my boss answered to were more caught up in their own agendas than actually good at doing their job.

    I have been working at Allegheny College full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The students are overall pretty phenomenal, the presidential leadership is exemplary, the advising and support staff is far above excellent, strong and competitive benefits packages

    Cons

    Lack of direction on diversity and equality with working beyond retention and student experience. Lack of progressive voices and policies to encourage diverse individuals to apply and stay at the institution. Speaks about diversity from one direction and then doesn't follow through with stated goals at the Faculty- administrative levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mentorship in the areas of broad defined diversity...not just sexual identity, race, and ideology. Stronger policies for student advocacy and protection.

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    It's very easy to get a work study position and you will make good connections if you can get a position within your department.

    Cons

    The pay is not much more than minimum wage and you don't get many hours unless you work several different jobs.
