    I have been working at Clark University

    Pros

    The workers are friendly and fun to be around. I thought the wages are reasonable. There aren't many hours available, but that's ok as this is really a work study job.

    Cons

    I think that the email system is flawed. People on campus and professors will be notified of their packages arrival at too early a date or time, which leads to a lot of complaints from the faculty and students. Other than this, I like what is being done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think that they should fix the email system, and maybe look to add an extra position for work study. A lot of trucks arrive on a daily basis, so maybe they should consider employing an additional person to help unload trucks.

    I worked at Clark University full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The higher education environment is lovely. Being around students who are full of hope and promise feels good. The small campus looks great 3 seasons of the year.

    Cons

    Management is old white guys and they don't want others playing in their sandbox. Very few women are in positions of power and there are no high up administrators who aren't white.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some women and people of color in decision-making positions. If staff reflected the student body, then things would be much better for us all.

    I have been working at Clark University full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The diversity really makes Clark University a different campus. The people are friendly and down-to-earth. There is no pressure for you to act in a certain way.

    Cons

    The courses are not challenging enough. Library and LEEP Center don't seem to be very resourceful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The staff needs to work harder to provide students with better opportunities rather than the ones in Worcester.
