    I worked at Bridgewater State University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing leadership, flexible hours, independent work, great atmosphere. Working here provided me with several skills that helped me further my career and successfully complete graduate school. I felt extremely comfortable working at this University.

    Cons

    Seeing as I was a student employee at the time the pay was very little. However, what lacked in pay made up for in experience.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice for the management at this time. I felt they did an amazing job.

    I have been working at Bridgewater State University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good job, free CDL and paid training, pick your own work schedule, opportunities to take on extra work (voluntary) at higher pay rate on most occasions. Most people in FMP are nice and enjoyable people to work with.

    Cons

    Not just within FMP but many departments are very black and white, resistant to change, etc. Where I work, student managers have too much authority. Very understaffed, but then again it is a state university.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees more and adapt to the changes needed to support the university growing

    I worked at Bridgewater State University part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Beautiful location with a small intimate victorian type setting. Generally people seem nice - in a "town" kind of way.

    Cons

    Although they say they are looking to move toward the future, without expertise in this area, they have been stabbing blind and aren't quite sure what best practices are. This doesn't make them bad - it makes them....painfully underprepared.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the teachers more than the students. Stop being a business and remain an institute of learning.

    I worked at Bridgewater State University part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling and a guaranteed raise every year. The position also had diverse tasks that attempted to keep workers busy.

    Cons

    Upper Management bullied middle management and corruption was wide spread with people cheating time sheets and doing absolutely nothing on the job. No compensation/promotions based on merit or hard work. Advancement is based on knowing the right people.

    Advice to Management

    Compensate people based on merit and stop wasting taxpayer money by forging timesheets. Help your employees grow by helping them instead of criticizing them left and right.

    I worked at Bridgewater State University part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Everyone was extremely helpful, and taught me skill sets outside my job description to prepare me for the job I wanted in the future.

    Cons

    While I was there, the upper management was having issues with the workers. There was miscommunication and a power struggle. From what I've heard, whatever issues they had have been solved.
