    It was fine.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood work environments. You literally cannot get fired.

    ConsThe pay is utterly terrible. Should be above minimum wage. No one can survive minimum wage.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHold people accountable.

    Great Beginner Work Experience

    Chief Executive Officer of Student Enterprise (Current Employee)
    Rome, GA

    ProsExperience 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.

    ConsCompensation, 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 Senior ManagementGive students more extrinsic motivation in the future to grow the program.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Opportunities abound

    Student Worker (Former Employee)
    Mount Bethel, GA

    ProsWorking 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.

    ConsLimitations 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 Senior ManagementContinue to grow and improve the student work program - it's a standout program

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A home away from home.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsLots to do here at Berry College.

    ConsThere really aren't many Cons. The town of Rome is a bit small.

    Great benefits, limited advancement opportunities.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Rome, GA

    ProsGreat benefits and substantial time off

    ConsThey do not promote from within

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive 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.

    Eh

    Student Technician (Former Employee)
    Mount Berry, GA

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

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementI like them a lot and have no real suggestions because most problems are out of the control of the department.
