    Re-examine some of the services depts whose leaders are long on experience but exceptionally burnt out.

    Pros

    The pay is rather low for the time and energy you put into. However your fellow student workers and staffers are awesome.The people there form an inspiring community. So you will be able to enjoy you time working there.

    Cons

    The winter there is long and harsh. The college is situated in a very tiny remote town without much life. But the work life balance is good if you choose to venture into other parts of the valley

    I have been working at Mount Holyoke College full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    staff members are always there to answer your questions
    you get promotions (and receive higher payment) if your supervisor (a staff member) recognizes your work

    Cons

    relatively poor communication with the other departments who happens to be working on similar tasks
    most student workers, e.g. dining hall student workers, are paid with MA minimum wage; the majority of the rest are paid only a little higher (almost unnoticeable), with only few paid the highest

    Pros

    I loved working here because I believe in Mount Holyoke's mission.

    The college is located in South Hadley and being someone who enjoys living in a large city, it can be a little boring sometimes.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, the campus/environment is beautiful; when you're not working you can go for a walk along one of the two lakes. There's a strong sense of community, so your day-to-day morale is high.

    Cons

    It is a college, so the normal issues of many girls of that age in one spot can be trying at times. Sometimes it can be a little cliquey given the small nature of the campus, so you have to be careful about who you upset or if you start any kind of work-drama. The winter is harsh too.

    I worked at Mount Holyoke College part-time

    Pros

    The Mount Holyoke community is incredibly supportive. My experience working at Mount Holyoke was overwhelmingly positive. I attended regular staff meetings in which the development of a tight knit office culture was encouraged, even facilitated. Members of Upper Management were also always available on email or to meet in person.

    Cons

    I do not have any cons to name.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Amazing co workers, always willing to help. Great atmosphere. Worked there as a graduate assistant and everyone was understanding of my course load and willing to adjust my schedule. Note: worked in the dept of athletics.

    Cons

    The community is very unique and it was slightly difficult fitting in at first but after a while it was a great feeling of comradery.
