    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Gettysburg College full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Benefits Good work environment- very flexible Friendly coworkers

    Cons

    Low pay Never closes for inclement weather (even blizzards!), employees either risk driving or use their own PTO No room to move up or grow, staff just move to the same position in different departments

    Advice to Management

    Consider that although all students live on campus, all staff do not and we still must travel in dangeruous snow and ice to come to work when you choose to stay open during inclement weather.

    I have been working at Gettysburg College full-time

    Pros

    The campus is beautiful, and some of the individuals who go there are really interesting and nice.

    Cons

    Students get drunk to much, no place for advancement in certain job areas


  8. The Environmental Department truly prepares you for success.

    Pros

    Small classrooms, close relationships with professors, intellectual peers (so long as those are the people you are looking for), intriguing syllabi

    Cons

    Greek life accounts for nearly 60% of the student base. I suppose this is a personal con, but it made my first two years socially difficult as I was not a fan of that particular lifestyle.

    I worked at Gettysburg College part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Laid-back atmosphere, trusted with materials and esteemed for skills by librarians, ability to work at own place, decent amount of schedule flexibility.

    Cons

    Can be repetitive, some limits on available times to come in to work, sometimes expected to be well versed in library-related software and writing trends.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that not all student employees know much about the behind-the-scenes/ inner workings of libraries.


  11. Great atmosphere for personal and professional development
