    I worked at Pratt Institute part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very structured HR with each department, clear communication with payroll, easy to work with, accommodates student workers very well.

    Cons

    Summer hours are different. Some departments are harder to apply for, especially the labs.

    Advice to Management

    Create more opportunities to outreach to work outside of campus or collaborate with professional groups.

    I have been working at Pratt Institute full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    * good culture, pretty well run * salaries seem decent relative to other universities

    Cons

    * administrative benefits aren't great (tuition remission and vacation are not as good as other universities) * can be a bit bureaucratic, particularly when it comes to inter-department communication

    Advice to Management

    * think harder about benefits outside of salary

    Pros

    A lot of downtime, a lot of nice people on staff.

    Cons

    Aside from being asked to created a promotional poster for a gallery exhibit (on campus), it isn't the professional experience a student needs.
