I worked at Macalester College

Pros

Great place to go to school, gave me a work-study job that gave me study time as well as work to do.

Cons

Wishy-washy as far as what my job was to be, didn't have regular tasks

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More direction for student employees in some departments. Some departments have way better student jobs than others.

    I have been working at Macalester College full-time for more than 3 years

    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 ManagementAdvice

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