    ProsThe benefits are great, including carpool incentives, tuition remission, medical, dental, vision, etc. There is a sense of community here.

    ConsPay for service positions is low. The typical political games. It is very difficult to advance your career here, though it can be done.

    Good experience

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Claremont, CA

    ProsLot of fun, interesting people to work with and around. Work environment can be pretty relaxed at times and hectic at others.

    ConsA little disorganized at times, which is particularly true depending on the department. Some are very organized others, not so much.

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

    Working at Pitzer College

    Computer Network Technician (Former Employee) Claremont, CA

    ProsVery laid back environment. Casual dress all the time and employees all know each other across different departments. Everyone is very nice, not much in the way of office politics. Workers often take time to go run errands during the day depending on how busy work is. Summers are especially easy as school is off. Benefits of working at a university are great when it comes to vacations such as winter break, spring break, and summer vacation.

    ConsNot much room for growth, mainly just people who have worked there the longest get the promotions and workers have been at their jobs for 10-20 years most of the time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake it more of a meritocracy.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
