Former Employee - Legal Intern in Washington, DC

I worked at Georgetown University as an intern for less than a year

Pros

It was a collegial environment and I learned a lot in my job. Working in the O'Neill Institute through the law center provided a lot of opportunities to make important contacts in the field and get work published under my name in legal journals.

Cons

DC is a very expensive place to live. The salary I got was enough, but not really comparable to what I would have made in my midwestern hometown when compared to cost of living.

    Former Employee - RHO Coordinator  in  Washington, DC
    Former Employee - RHO Coordinator in Washington, DC

    I worked at Georgetown University full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    On-campus housing is provided, and this job develops good customer service experience. A good way to stay around the university in the summer and make some money to boot. No experience required.

    Cons

    The larger organization is sprawling and rather poorly organized, so a good experience depends on a good RHO Coordinator. Also, some dorms are far busier than others with events and check-ins.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide a better system for training employees--the current training is tedious and doesn't address many issues which actually arise.

    Former Employee - Resident Assistant  in  Washington, DC
    Former Employee - Resident Assistant in Washington, DC

    I worked at Georgetown University as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Residence Life is always a good choice - engaging with residents, planning programs for them, being a resource for them, and watching them grow is great. The benefits are also great with Residence Life

    Cons

    The administration is very by-the-books - they do not make exceptions for anything, even when sometimes the exception would be in the best interest of both parties.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should listen to their employees more.
