    I have been working at Duquesne University part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Supportive, low-key bosses; friendly, helpful co-workers; pleasant, motivated students.

    Cons

    Air quality in building--the windows are sealed, a better air purifying system would help. Might not be a good place to hang out all day for people with dust allergies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None really, as they truly are good people.

    good place

    I have been working at Duquesne University part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Nice work environment. The people there are generally very nice. It is one of the few places that a Master student can get a graduate assistantship and full tuition scholarship.

    Cons

    I really don’t see any obvious cons. If I have to say something, it might be the work is mostly routine, not much fun and creative. But as a graduate assistant job, how much fun you expect?

    I worked at Duquesne University

    Pros

    Good place to work very friendly people. Benefits are great and the campus is as well. Time off is sweet.

    Cons

    Honestly the only con is that it's located in the city if you don't like that sort of thing. Located near public transit to offset this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your tutition benefits and retirement as they are. Don't cut back on anything. Increase employee salaries accross the board.

    great and friendly place

    Former Employee - Graduate Assistant in Pittsburgh, PA
    Former Employee - Graduate Assistant in Pittsburgh, PA

    I worked at Duquesne University part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I obtained my master degree in duquesne university and also worked as a graduate assistant there in over one year. Most people I have worked with are very nice. The working schedule is flexible. I was happy when I worked and studied there.

    Cons

    I don't really see any obvious cons in Duquesne. But I do think Duquesne focuses more on undergrads since it is a small university. For graduate students like us, there maybe less chances to get exposure like undergrads or other students in larger and known universities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't really have advice to management at this time. Just keep up good work. thanks!
