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

Pros

* Generally, most staff/faculty are very nice and approachable.
* It is small enough that you can be on a first name basis with a lot of people in different departments.
* Good work/life balance.

Cons

* Pay is low
* Career growth/pay growth is non existent.
* Tend to hire from outside than give opportunities to staff within.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You need to give staff some sort of career path. To always hire outside is incredibly discouraging. Also, they need to get away from hiring these controlling middle aged women managers who have no lives and who make their employees lives miserable.

    Former Employee - Lifeguard in Santa Clara, CA

    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.
