    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, a very fast-paced, exciting, supportive environment. I enjoyed the entrepreneurial spirit and mission of the Center for Entrepreneurship

    Cons

    The pay is below industry average and some of the positions are not very marketable relative to other part-time/ internship opportunities

    Pros

    Relaxing environment to work in. You can make your own schedule, which is perfect for students with a heavy class load.

    Cons

    I feel like the communication could have been a bit better between faculty and the student workers. Sometimes I felt like I was unwanted if I had a question and approached a superior about it, like I was putting a strain on their day for asking a simple question.

    I worked at Millikin University part-time

    Pros

    The entire staff is always accessible (within reason), their expectations are consistently reasonable while pushing you to your best, and you can't beat the culture at Millikin.

    Cons

    The upper management and department heads do not value their faculty as much as they could. It's an extremely small university, which some people do not like. The campus is beautiful, but there are some rough areas in the surrounding town.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let excellent members of the Millikin faculty get away. You are starting to lose some really great ones.

    Pros

    They always work with students on their schedules.

    Cons

    Low pay job for students.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice for the management to provide students with a little more pay so they could be competitive with other employers. However, with the student being right on campus they do not have to have a car or spend additional funds to drive back and forth to work. Also, the college works around students schedules so they are able to attend class and work before or after.

    I have been working at Millikin University full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good students
    Good colleagues
    Beautiful campus
    Quality programs

    Cons

    Does not value your hard work and passion with kind words or salary increases.
    Mandates many requirements of the university rather than ask for our help.
    Seems that it who you know more than what you know.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to listen and share problems and let colleagues work to better the quality of the school. It is so much easier to work with people who listen and value you and your ideas even if they don't agree with them.

    College education is a business and the bills must be paid.

    I have been working at Millikin University

    Pros

    The faculty are supportive and intelligent. The staff are supportive.

    Cons

    Management is having to deal with the fact that enrollment is tied to financial survival. It seems that in some programs students who do not belong are retained inorder to keep enrollment numbers sufficiently high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a business model where the school can cull the poor performing students and have the school in a position to still pay its bills.
