    I worked at Pitzer College full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    I have been working at Pitzer College as an intern

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    I worked at Pitzer College

    Pros

    Very 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.

    Cons

    Not 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 ManagementAdvice

    Make it more of a meritocracy.
