I have been working at Wellesley College full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Housing is included, good community, fun environment, there is a nurturing learning experience, you grow closer with professors and colleagues.

Cons

If you live on campus without a car, it is difficult to go anywhere, including the grocery store if you need to provide your own food. While living on campus there is very little social interaction outside of work. Often, employers think that you will work outside of your normal hours because you live on campus.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Separate work from home life for students. Don't expect your employees to leave for the day and go home to work from their rooms.
