    Pros

    Great college community, most of the students I worked with were smart, caring, wonderful young people.

    Cons

    Departments range from amazing and innovated to antiquated and limiting in how they run and the room for faculty to do their work well. Overall culture is quite conservative and policies and practices are questionable in their support of non-white male students, faculty or staff.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to more innovative, non traditional ways of learning and teaching---that's where students seem to benefit the most but are funded the least.

    Pros

    Best work study job on campus! You learn very practical computer skills and get to try out the newest gadgets that come in the department. The supervisor is great, very understanding and sociable. Fantastic work hours and good pay for the amount of work you have to do. Bosses are very good to their employees and appreciate their help with the petty problems you solve for them. You can make friends while working and once you get good at your duties people will think you are a computer wiz.

    Cons

    Work scheduling is base on how long you have been there. Some work hours are very late and you may get bored. At times peers and management maybe very unprofessional. Some calls are just stupid. Your friends will ask you to fix their computer which may get annoying.

    Advice to Management

    Have some REAL training for the employees.

    Pros

    PC is a good place to be. It is a great environment with many cultural activities going on. The grounds and buildings are beautiful. It is always enriching to be in the company of students who want to learn and professors who want to teach. It offers many workshops to keep one up-to-date in the newest technology.

    Cons

    A common complaint is lack of faculty and staff parking on campus. Although it has gotten better if you don't need in/out access during the course of the workday.


  11. Supportive environment committed to transforming self and society.
