    A Great Joy to Work at Clark!

    Assistant Director of Admissions (Former Employee) Worcester, MA

    ProsAfforded autonomy in carrying out the duties of the role, numerous opportunities for leadership and skill development, travel is great (domestic and international - 3 months out of the year), vibrant community of professionals, academics and students, 4 weeks vacation.

    ConsThe pay was low compared to comparable jobs at other universities - though Worcester is very affordable so it kind of balances out.

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

    Research Assistant

    Research Assistant (Former Employee) Worcester, MA

    ProsI received a great education for my field and was able to get a great job not long afterwards.

    ConsThe education style is old-fashioned where faculty are overworked, not compensated very fairly, and prioritize their efforts on excelling students while leaving struggling students behind.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest more money into the quality of the education through instructors and research and not on fancy new dormitories (with flat-screen TVs on every floor) for your growing student body.

    I love Clark and its people, but it's hard to make a livable wage if you're not at the top.

    ConsThe salaries are the worst. Most people have to get second jobs to make ends meet.
