    Pros

    I had a flexible work schedule and was able to trade shifts with the other tutors.

    Making minimum wage was a con.

    I have been working at Hendrix College

    Pros

    It's a welcoming and tolerant environment and students and other employees are personable.

    Cons

    Hendrix does not pay well across all levels. The lower and mid-level administration is incompetent and amateurish. The upper administration is a perfect example of institutional bloating at the expense of the rest.

    I have been working at Hendrix College full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The teaching load is reasonable (3 courses/semester). Hendrix attracts high caliber students. The overall atmosphere is one of strong mutual respect throughout the faculty. There is a high level of professionalism, and every faculty member here is serious about the school's mission.

    Cons

    Salaries are not competitive, even given a relatively low cost of living. As with many colleges, the generally liberal atmosphere can be suffocating for a relatively conservative professor. Enrollment swings are common, leading to questionable long-range planning.

    Pros

    being an ra at hendrix is easy

    Cons

    everyone hates you as an ra

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    disassociate being an ra with being written up for doing things that every college kid does. I would've enjoyed this job way more if I the friends I had before I was an RA weren't so weird to me while I was one.

    I worked at Hendrix College part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The people you work with will for the most part be smart, kind, considerate. You will get time off if you need it. They hire from within.

    Cons

    Small place in a small town means a small salary. Lots of gossip. Lots of grunt work.

    Decent for experience but not substantial - Student Workers

    I have been working at Hendrix College part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent learning experience
    Prioritization is possible if you have connections

    Cons

    Pay is cut to minimal and then even more so
    Do not be fooled by the words "full time," they can define it as 25 hours a week

  9.  

    Great people to work with, but management issues are a drawback.

    - great benefits (2 weeks off at Christmas, half "Spring Break," and other holidays)

    Cons

    - compensation is low
    - tenuous relationship between faculty/staff and senior leadership

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - consider diversity in senior leadership

    I worked at Hendrix College

    Pros

    Great sense of community; department and co-workers are passionate about the work that they do. The institution seeks to blaze its own trail. In many areas, it purposely avoids following the crowd.

    Cons

    Because it is a small institution, multiple jobs are required of most employees. Office space is at a premium; shared work spaces and lack of privacy are common.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Staff salaries are not competitive with other educational institutions or the business world. Because it is a private college, major donors' giving has a huge impact on programs that are funded and buildings that are constructed. Not all are necessarily within the mission of the college. Don't forget your Methodist roots! It often seems like you are purposely promoting anti-Christian values.
