    Pros

    It was great being able to do home work at "work", flexible hrs and scheduling, great for a work study job. great work environment. Awesome community of chill, laid back, liberian type folk.

    Cons

    I have no cons to speak of, except maybe that the pay is pretty low, was Florida minimum wage and I think it requires that you met requirements for work study.

    Pros

    The employee benefits are excellent.
    We work in a park-like setting; lovely views out office windows and a pleasant place for walking during work-breaks.
    Intelligent community.
    Caring and dedicated co-workers.

    Cons

    Sometimes college students (our "customers") can make foolish choices ...
    Salaries could be higher.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You'd have the happiest team of workers if you could figure out how to raise salaries just a little; everything else is wonderful!

    Current Employee - Assistant Student Enrollment Manager in Saint Petersburg, FL

    Pros

    Employer contribution to retirement fund is excellent. Physical setting is beautiful (surrounded on 3 sides by water and heavily treed.) Eckerd College community is very committed to recycling and other ecological and global responsibilities.

    Cons

    Private college so salaries are not high and resources are not abundant. As typical with academia, higher degrees are revered and those without them are often devalued.
