I loved Bryn Mawr but as a student employee there is a lot of work for not very much pay.

Laboratory Assistant (Former Employee)
Bryn Mawr, PA

I worked at Bryn Mawr as an intern for more than a year

ProsI gained valuable research experience that helped me land post college jobs I wouldn't have gotten without a research background.

ConsA lot of work, not a lot of money in return. The college likes to pay with credit, which of course you pay for so you pay to be a slave for a year.

Advice to Senior ManagementAllow students to opt out of taking supervised research as a class. I was forced to pay an extra $10k to work for free, very disgruntled at the end of the year.

great place to work

Director (Current Employee)
Bryn Mawr, PA

I have been working at Bryn Mawr full-time for more than 5 years

Prosnice people, interesting atmosphere, some flexibility with hours and fabulous benefits. It is a small enough place that you can be exposed to many departments outside your area of expertise and I think there has been a positive push to collaborate more between departments.

ConsThere are certainly some difficult or entitled personalities, but I think you find those anywhere. Housing in Bryn Mawr can be expensive (and if it isn't, it is overrun with students), but the main line offers lots of other places to live which don't make the commute too far - especially by train.

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

A women's college that is understaffed

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Bryn Mawr, PA

I worked at Bryn Mawr full-time for more than a year

ProsIt's small and intimate, which means you get to know everyone quickly. The students are fantastic to work with and there are many co-workers who go above and beyond in their jobs.

ConsThe administration is very concerned about keeping costs low. While this is understandable, it means that there is a large amount of under-staffing in administrative positions.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease consider the staffing of new programs and buildings before you institute them.

There is a lot to be improved at this school, and particularly in the Development Office

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Bryn Mawr, PA

I have been working at Bryn Mawr full-time for more than a year

ProsExcellent work-life balance, Excellent benefits

ConsTerrible senior management resulting in despondent staff. This college is also stuck in its traditional ways. The staff have only just begun thinking of the college broadly as a business that needs to compete with other colleges. There also seems to be a lack of trust and faith between the faculty/staff and the current president.

It was a really great experience.

Lifeguard (Former Employee)
Lincolnwood, IL

I worked at Bryn Mawr part-time for less than a year

ProsMeet a lot of interesting club members as well as a very flexible schedule for the most part, and the breaks were nice.

ConsDid not get paid much (though for the amount of work I had to do it was fine), and the main boss is very intimidating
