    I worked at Rhode Island College full-time (more than 5 years)

    There was a lot of training and supervisors were very good to their employees. Everyone appreciates your work and encourage you to do your best. Great experience for college students! You meet so many people for all walks of life.

    Cons

    not much benefits offered as a working student.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Wish I could work there full time.

    Former Employee - Clerical Assistant in Providence, RI

    I worked at Rhode Island College part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Employees were very helpful and friendly. It was a work study job and they were very accommodating to my schedule.

    Cons

    Management was too emotionally involved and employees seemed to get very lax about their jobs. Spent a great deal of time perusing the web and complaining that they were treated unfairly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not get so deeply involved with employees' personal lives and behave more professionally. No ranting and raving in front of students and parents. Everyone should be treated with respect, not according to your personal feelings at the moment.

    I worked at Rhode Island College full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    My department was very supportive and people always had an open-door policy. It was not at all like some academic departments that are very political. I also felt like I had a lot of independence and creative freedom, while also getting the peer support I needed. Also, Providence is a great city and has one of the best dining scenes in the region, as well as proximity to Boston, Cape Cod, and NYC.

    Cons

    The starting salary was extremely low. There was some support for research and professional development, but as a whole this was very minimal and certainly below what would be expected for an institution this large. There are some great students at RIC, but there also a lot who are not prepared for college, which can make the job more challenging.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop greater funding mechanisms to support faculty development and research.

    Pros

    The staff and faculty of RIC are a very freindly group of professionals. Hoursly wages for grad aides are OK at $12. Or, as a grad assistant you can have your tuition waived. Great and respectful working environment in a convenient location!

    Cons

    There are other, higher-profile graduate schools where being a grad assistant means waived in addition to a generous stipend - RIC simply cannot afford that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seek funding to improve grad student benefits. Perhaps for a graduate union, like URI.
