Pros

Diverse workforce, great learning opportunities, supportive of families, wonderful parental leave policy, wonderful childcare grants, really nice amounts of vacation time.

Cons

While this is a complaint I have had about other universities at which I have worked, I find it disagreeable that when living in a largely rural environment that I should have to pay ever greater amounts of post-tax money to park at work. If this were not enough, it is my understanding the the university's policy is actually to REDUCE the number of parking spots over the future. Finding it unconscionable to put this financial burden on the employee, I would park off campus and walk a half-mile to my building. This made my 7 mile commute a 40-50 minute trip each way.

    Pros

    Work environment is very friendly and encouraging. Other employees are more than willing to help out and the work itself was satisfying. The pay was good considering the relaxed work schedule and job tasks.

    Cons

    At times I felt that one of the projects I was working on had potential to be very helpful for marketing the college's strong suits that it was out of my skill set as a new intern. This was confirmed when the project was redone by a professonal

    Pros

    The school has a great reputation and the alumni love us which makes the job fun.

    Cons

    Location. Location. Location. Ithaca's remoteness can prove a challenge at times but if you like small towns it really is beautiful.

    Advice to Management

    Generally very seasoned and good to work with.
