    I worked at Dartmouth (More than a year)

    Pros

    Best paid job on campus, and it was pretty relaxed. It was a good way to meet people

    Cons

    I had to wake up at 7:45 am, and the tone of the drill varied depending on which professor I worked for.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that you are professional, or they will fire you. It's a coveted job, and there are subs who would jump to take your place.

    I worked at Dartmouth part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    * It's a very easy, laid back job. With good shifts, there isn't too much of a bustle, and you can also choose to work with a reference librarian * It's nice when you can help visitors and see them smile!

    Cons

    * People sometimes expect you to be a printer technician when really you're role is to handle questions about the library...on the other hand, you DO become amazing a fixing most printer problems since you'll be seeing a lot * You realize how many staplers people steal in a day....

    Advice to Management

    Management is great! It would be nice if some of the resources were updated and if there could be a tighter and stricter set of consequences for when people consistently don't show up to their shifts because it causes problems for other employees but there's really no major issue.

    Pros

    The staff are very friendly and supportive of each other. And at least at the time, there was a free bus system in town.

    Cons

    There is a very strongly structured hierarchy to the college, creating a micro-society based on classism. It is very difficult to every advance your career there.

    I have been working at Dartmouth full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I had a great postdoc experience, learned a lot from my peers, was exposed to many new opportunities and people

    Cons

    Very poor support for research, basically none. Very dissappointed about this. Poor pay.

    Pros

    Great place to see how politics in academia work, and you learn how to navigate as you go

    Cons

    If you are a fellow, your salary is likely to be supported by short funding mechanisms, so you're constantly on a contract basis for annual renewal. Your salary doesn't come from hard cash.

    Pros

    Dartmouth is a great place to work because the people are very friendly and dedicated to doing a great job.

    Cons

    I was a student employee so I am not sure how applicable this would be to full-time employees but I can't think of a single con.

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing the great job you have always done as the managers I had always gave me enough space to work but support whenever I needed it.
