    Pros

    Very relaxed environment, but that was dependent on the lab that you worked in. Staff and professors were both very friendly. Great place to get your name published in a paper.

    Cons

    Small campus in not the best part of worcester. Some of the departments could use better funding. Very little to do if you live near campus and don't drive.

    Advice to Management

    The school seems to be doing fine. Administrators are open and friendly, most other employees seem to know what they are doing. Overall keep on the same path that you are going.

  7. Great but somewhat mislead school

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Clark University

    Pros

    Training is very comprehensive and, in my opinion, accurately instills the values of the organization in employees

    Cons

    Leadership is somewhat insular despite their attempts otherwise. Alumni network isn't connected with students in some programs, and it is very clear which programs are prioritized.

    Advice to Management

    Work on improving happiness of your students equally as hard as you do to attract new students, it'll build a better environment.

    Pros

    The students are wonderful, and many faculty are wonderful--interesting, thoughtful people. The president is forward thinking and ambitious and has been introducing some excellent initiatives.

    Cons

    Salaries tend to be on the low end, and the administration is tight with money for everything but its pet projects and for administrators.

    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

    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.
