    Pros

    Higher Educaiton is a personal value and the College fulfills a niche for those who thrive in a small liberal arts setting. The benefits are great! Don't have to be a suit here.

    Cons

    There is no consistancy between departments re raises, promotions, flextime, etc. Lack of feedback re how individuals are doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create an employee evaluation system and guidelines across all departments re flextime, hours worked per week ,etc.

    Pros

    Most opportunities are on-campus, which means that there is no need to drive. Pay for student workers is comparable with most similar positions in the surrounding area. Networking is another major plus, as it is such a close knit and small community that you are destined to make a great connection. Internships look great on the resume, you can build good rapport with faculty, and give back to your college!

    Regarding other positions that students do not usually take, most professors and other staff are extremely content with their positions. Recent changes in scheduling have caused some discontent, but overall everyone loves being a part of the community.

    Cons

    It is very small, and sometimes as a student it is good to have a diverse work history. To have 4 different positions on your resume coming from Hood may not depict your ability to get out in the world.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work! I thoroughly enjoyed my education and work experience, and I will be applying for a position in the future.
