I have been working at Wellesley College

Pros

Beautiful campus, free course auditing opportunities, great coworkers

Cons

As an alum, I am not satisfied with the way the college is managing their money and the quick turn over of staff members speaks to the way they feel they are treated and overworked.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to criticism and stop doing things for rankings only.

    I have been working at Wellesley College

    Pros

    Prestige, gorgeous environment, high quality students, faculty and peer-staff, great benefits, flexible schedule, academic work-year. The students, staff and faculty are smart and competent, and usually take pride in their work.

    Cons

    There are upper management and "working-class" positions and the gap between is huge. It is almost impossible to rise from the wage level to the salary level. Managers often don't even mix with staff. Faculty is often oblivious. Wealth is squandered on superficials, and people don't matter as much as image.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is only ethical for an institution of higher education to offer it's employees a living wage and advancement opportunities. If you would listen to the people who actually do the work, you might learn how to run the college more effectively. The recent cost-cutting has been ruthless and demoralizing.

    I worked at Wellesley College part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pay for students was really fair! I also learned a lot about the bureaucracy of the College and the hours are flexible enough if you plan ahead.

    Cons

    Disagreeing with the administration's decisions or opinions (especially if they were your boss or boss's boss) while working in the administrative offices was difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your students! Also, a lot of offices are undergoing internal conflicts that will make it harder for them to adequately serve their students, so that should be a number one priority.
