    I worked at Middlebury College full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The college does a great job of making sure you can balance work and school. You can usually find hours that fit around your class schedule and extracurriculars. It also offers great work-study opportunities.

    Cons

    The jobs can take a lot of time out of your week, as school is very demanding. The pay for the more menial jobs is great, but the pay for the harder, more skilled/demanding jobs is marginally better. That's frustrating.

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

    Pros

    Terrific launch pad for work experience

    Cons

    There are buildings that are quite far from the main campus. Althought transportation efforts are in place, there is a feeling of disconnect from the rest of the college.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Salary banding doesn't seem far to those that have been their long term. There has to be a better way of promoting those that work as hard as those coming in. The college should think twice about trying to keep everyone at or near their mid-point salary range.

    I worked at Middlebury College

    Pros

    Middlebury is undergoing a potentially huge culture change, and within this change there is a lot of potential for leadership and creative thinking.

    Cons

    Middlebury is undergoing a potentially huge culture change. If you are not on board, you may find the work challenging on intellectual and personal levels.

    Current Employee - Recycling Center in Middlebury, VT

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

    Pros

    Not very demanding jobs, including mine at the college's recycling center facility. Many of the jobs, including the ones in the library, allow students to do homework while on the job, which is nice.
    I hear that at the Technology Helpdesk, or more research-focused jobs, you can actually learn something from your job and use those applicable skills on your resume while applying for internships and jobs down the road.

    Cons

    Low hourly pay compared to other elite colleges and universities

    Great company

    I worked at Middlebury College

    Pros

    Weather was very great and I liked the people very much. Vermont is a beautiful place and I learned a lot selling tickets at a box office.

    Cons

    My job could get tedious at times when waiting for customers. It was ok I guess but not ideal. Tickets are hard to sell these days

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your students more

    I worked at Middlebury College part-time

    Pros

    interactive, close interaction with professors, and there is always a professor that needs help with their research

    Cons

    Advising can be tricky--if you're paired with the wrong advisor freshman year, it could make science coursework scheduling harder
