I have been working at George Washington University full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

The University is large and provides a lot of opportunity for growth once hired.

Cons

It's a large institution focused heavily on making money because it is a business. Don't let the not-for-profit status and educational mission make you think otherwise.

    I worked at George Washington University part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Free housing (during the summer), flexible hours, laid back work environment, supportive management

    Cons

    The main downside of working for GW is the bureaucracy. As a student employee you at the very bottom of a long food chain. Little room to question irrational decisions feedback can get lost in the mess of hierarchy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing, but also remember that for students, academics come first.
