Current Employee - Financial Aid Front Desk in Nashville, TN

I have been working at Vanderbilt University part-time (less than an year)

Pros

The coworkers are friendly, management is understanding, and the pay is above minimum wage. It also is providing work experience that will will improve my chances for obtaining a well paying job after graduation.

Cons

Like with any company, it all depends on departments, management, and people. The book store was an unfortunate experience with poor management. The financial aid office has proven to be exceptionally better, but there is no room for advancement as a graduate student.

    I worked at Vanderbilt University full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Innovative culture, smart people, Nashville, tuition benefits (equivilent to Vanderbilt tuition anywhere in the country). Leadership is focused on a few goals at once allowing positive change to occur. People willing to contribute for greater good, health/wellness benefits, free public transit, discounts and other perks

    Cons

    lower than average pay, little room for advancement, Some politics and bureaucracy (to be expected in universities). If you work with students, some of them can be a bit demanding and "customer" oriented

    No job security--executive administration cares only about their futures

    I have been working at Vanderbilt University full-time

    Pros

    Great academic university-I am an alumnus.

    Cons

    Employees are unaware of the incredible compensation packages of the Chancellor, Vice Chancellors, Assistant Vice Chancellors, Deans and other senior management even with thousands of employee layoffs. No job security even though the executive administration and Human Resources promise security and are very vocal about job security.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees how you would want to be treated as well as how you would want your own family members treated.
