No opinion of CEO

I worked at Santa Clara University part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Flexible hours, great weather (aside from winter quarter), fun staff, and solid hourly pay. You can also get a lot of studying and homework done during shifts, which is a nice perk for students. This is an ideal on-campus job for students looking to make good money in a stress-free environment!

Cons

The opening shift can be brutal thanks to the undesirable task of removing tarps from the pool. Winter gets awfully cold, but that's honestly the only downside to the job.

    I have been working at Santa Clara University full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    All the staff here are really friendly. It's amazing that some have worked here for 20+ years. It just goes to show that this is a great place to work at. There are special committees for everything if you want to get more involved. It's also a place where you can leave all your work at work and not have to worry about anything when you get home. I wouldn't say it's a stress free place to work, but the benefits of working here greatly outnumber the cons. Plus, free tuition for staff and their dependents!

    Cons

    While working with some of the students, I feel that they feel that they are privileged because they attend SCU and demand special attention. I also don't feel that there is a lot of diversity on campus but it seems to be getting better.

    I have been working at Santa Clara University part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    positive work environment, beautiful location, institution upholds high ethical standards, i got a lot of hands-on experience, met wonderful people and made great connections. all around the best work experience ive ever had, out of 7 jobs

    Cons

    they use Groupwise for their email client, which many people find frustrating, not user friendly, and out of date. Raiser's Edge is another program used internally that is tedious and not very efficient, slowing you down and wasting valuable work time

    Advice to Management

    provide better cloud storage
