I worked at Creighton University part-time for more than a year

Pros

You get 1000/month for working 10 hours a week.
You also get compensated for 9 credit hours per year.
(These numbers could change by year, but you always get at least 6 credit hours paid for, and at least 500/month. It just depends on how many GRAs there are that year and how much money they have budgeted)
You get to set your own schedule with the professor that you are an assistant for.

Cons

You don't always have work to do.... I guess this can be a Pro depending on how you look at it.
Really there are no cons.

    Pleasant work environment, a bit difficult to advance

    I worked at Creighton University full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Creighton is a nice university setting. Opportunities for employee development. People appreciate the Catholic and Jesuit identity of the university.

    Cons

    Advancement plan for employees is non-existent. It really depends upon whether you can make connections on your own. HR doesn't help out much, but it's small enough that you can make connections if you try.

    Great place to work, if I was planning to retire in the next decade

    I worked at Creighton University

    Pros

    Great people work here; I felt like part of the family everyday when I got to work.
    I loved my manager and senior management; they are great people.
    Benefits were great: I got a masters degree essentially for free; paid time off and holidays are fantastic.
    Flexibility in work hours for many positions.

    Cons

    Average employee age is approximately 50-55. Ideas from those under the age of 40 are ignored; I was told that I was "too young" several times when presenting ideas. Good 'ol boys club is alive and well here.
    Afraid of change.
    Salaries are well-below average; benefits are suppose to make up for low pay. (I make $10,000 more now after a lateral move).
    There is no potential for promotion or advancement for 99% of positions.
    Decisions from management take 3-6+ months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to new employees' ideas. Don't be afraid of change or youth. There are better ways of doing something; never think you are the best...someone is always better.
