Pros

-Because the staff size is small, there is a great variety of interesting opportunities and projects to work on.

-The organizational structure is excellent, there is a lot of 'cross-pollination' between units (ie, few turf wars), and the people with whom I work are professional and fun to be around.

-You can't beat the benefits, the location, and the work hours (8-4:30).

-The College has a very robust financial standing, so there is no worry of layoffs or benefit cuts.

Cons

-You do give up some salary premium to have the benefits, but I feel that they are more than made up for in the quality of life. Plus, there is a tuition benefit for staff children that pays for their tuition at Macalester or other ACTC and ACM institutions.

Advice to Management

-As the other reviewer stated, I would encourage management to look within when promoting.

    Pros

    -Flexible work schedule; able to network and communicate with your co-workers if there should ever be a conflict with your schedule as a student
    - Friendly bosses that do care about your well being and strive to make sure that you're looked after as a worker

    Cons

    As an athletic assistant there are no real periods of immersion or training given, which is very detrimental with regards to your growth as a professional and etc.
