    Keep it up! Focus on keeping new recruits.

    Pros

    Every person within the college I worked for was easy to get along with. Communication among levels was very strong and everyone was extremely knowledgeable. The environment and atmosphere was very nice.

    Cons

    One of the biggest downsides would be the politics that take place within the University. If someone has a title of "Vice" on their name, they get paid more than the rest. One college needed funds to hire a much needed professor, but due to the "budget cuts", they were unable to do so. The sad part was, those people in the upper management did not miss out on their raises, but students were not able to get the best education, because they were unable to hire a new professor.

    Advice to Management

    Stop letting politics ruin the University. Don't give everyone a title of "Vice" and a raise, just because they have a title. If they deserve it, then evaluate why, don't just give them a raise because of a title.

    Pros

    It's a great job if you're working on a master's degree. There is lots of opportunity to make contacts with the professors and get assistance where you need to. Also, if you're lucky you'll have time to work on your school work.

    Cons

    The bosses of the program don't care about their employee's needs. They'll promise one thing and the minute their needs change they'll throw you to the curb if your hours no longer fit what they want.

    Advice to Management

    Have some integrity and keep promises. Just because your employees are students as well doesn't mean that you can treat them like children.
