    Wonderful people - love my time here running a program at Lafayette.

    Coordinator (Current Employee)

    as a student, there are plenty of good opportunities to work closely with professors

    Researcher (Former Employee)

    ProsLafayette 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.

    ConsNot very many cons, I've had great experiences all 3 summers research at LC.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not enough challenges, no long term future

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementDuring 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
