    I have been working at Clark University full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    It's a beautiful campus and the mission of teaching students to be imaginative and contributing citizens of the world weaves through the whole college experience.

    Cons

    While the diversity of staff and students is evident, at the highest levels it's mostly white males which is not inviting to those of us who are in neither category.
    Parking can be difficult especially in the winter. The main garage is not near where I work and street parking is dicey at best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Women and people of color need to be in higher positions. It's 2014 so ditch the tired, old, yankee mentality and let everyone into the sandbox.

    I worked at Clark University full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Afforded 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.

    Cons

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

    I worked at Clark University part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

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

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Invest 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.
