    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Work hours were very flexible, tuition reimbursement for employee & family.

    Cons

    Work was not challenging and became mundane quickly; little training provided to employees. No long term strategy developed within departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    During my tenure at the college, there was little involvement from management in career development opportunities. There are a number of other colleges and universities within the Lehigh valley that offer better benefits and advancement opportunities.

    Pros

    Lafayette is a small but well-endowed college with great professors who have good connections. Being able to do research as an undergraduate is great, especially since it is possible to work closely with professors and the research team and there are no graduate students.

    Cons

    Not very many cons, I've had great experiences all 3 summers research at LC.
