    I worked at Berry College

    Pros

    The student work program gives great opportunities to apply what is learned in the classroom to real world settings. The experience I gained at Berry College was extremely valuable.

    Cons

    It can be challenging to balance work with other activities and class and homework, but it is worthwhile as it teaches good time management skills

    Challenge students more.

    Good work environments. You literally cannot get fired.

    Pros

    Experience is the primary benefit to working at Berry college as a student. If you are looking for work experience in college and are unsure about applying to a real employer because of credentials, consider going here.

    Cons

    Compensation, work life balance, and job training definitely need some work. Sometimes the impact of your work and efforts are not seen till years down the line. An individual needs a high level of self-motivation, especially in more intensive jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give students more extrinsic motivation in the future to grow the program.

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

    Pros

    Working at Berry was amazing - friendly work culture, supervisors were invested in helping student workers, there was a lot of schedule flexibility, and a wide variety of jobs available to students.

    Cons

    Limitations to the student work program include that hours/wages have strict limits, it may take a while to find a job that's a best fit for a student depending on their career path, and not all departments have the option of a student taking a higher level position as they gain more experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to grow and improve the student work program - it's a standout program

    Pros

    Great benefits and substantial time off

    Cons

    They do not promote from within

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more consideration for current employees when he/she are looking to take on resposibility and be promoted. Compensation should follow when more responsibility is expected.

    I worked at Berry College

    Pros

    Great people, ever changing environment. Training is provided for free in order to further knowledge. Lots of available certifications to get.

    Cons

    Lots of work with very little recognition. If anything with Berry's IT goes wrong, it is YOUR fault, not user error.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I like them a lot and have no real suggestions because most problems are out of the control of the department.
