    Pros

    The people are great. It is a comfortable work environment. If you are on the right team, the stress is low and the team is great to work with. You will enjoy your job.

    Cons

    Because it is so relaxed it is often difficult to engage resources. Response times from resource managers and Sr. Management is sluggish at best. Customer service internally for IT is a foreign concept. As far as Cons go, this is a weak one. The compensation is not competitive for the FTE positions, but you will not starve on them either.

    Advice to Management

    Improve internal customer service. This is specific to IT.

    Pros

    it's a pretty good place to work and I really enjoy my coworkers. cafeteria is really great too as an added bonus

    Cons

    I didn't feel like there was a lot of opportunities for advancement in my department normally but when the new James opened that exploded. It depends on timing.

    Pros

    Good pay for a student job, short shifts two days a week, and every other weekend. Always opportunities to switch schedule with people and to get more hours.

    Cons

    Hospitals must serve food 365 days a year, so holidays get a little tight with people wanting to go home. Also, fast turn over. Almost entirely new staff from when I started to when I finished almost a year later.

    Advice to Management

    Offer longer training. When I began working, I shadowed other employees for a few weeks before having my own floor(s). By the time I left, new employees seemed to have only a few days of shadowing before going at it alone (although students and managers would still help them if they needed it).

    Pros

    Great benefits, location, and hours. Very stimulating, challenging environment which also offered tuition reimbursement or free classes through the university

    Cons

    A bit of a cutthroat environment at times - coworkers can be competitive, but that can be the case with any place of employment

    Advice to Management

    My manager was fantastic so none comes to mind

  9. I worked here while in college. I was a student account payable clerk in the accounts payable department.

    Pros

    There were very flexible when it came to scheduling with the students. We were able to work around our class schedules with ease.

    Cons

    Parking was not easy, so many of the students had to take a bus to get there. Also, there were no good food options, so we had to pack a lunch

    Advice to Management

    I think that you should work to keep the students engaged, and not just have them there to sort mail.
