I have been working at Georgetown University full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

It is a prestigious institution and it's name carries weight out in the world. You can get a valuable Georgetown degree for free as well.

Cons

Benefits are bad. Rank and file employees are not respected and treated poorly. Leadership is arrogant and not strategic.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Rethink your leadership paradigm. Respect the people that are getting it done on your behalf.

    I worked at Georgetown University part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The job was convenient and somewhat flexible. I learned clerical skills and had free time to pursue personal interest.

    Cons

    The pay was not great and the work was not challenging. No one ever gets fired so promotions aren't common.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing really.

    I have been working at Georgetown University full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Collegial work environment. Academically stimulating. Good opportunities for professional development. Impressive name recognition. Pretty decent employee benefits. Ability to interact with top-notch students. Good mission.

    Cons

    Salaries are relatively low, and merit raises and/or promotions are few and far between. There is the propensity to give large and impressive titles at promotion time, instead of salary increases.
