Great at Trusting You With Responsibility

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Rhodes College

ProsYou are given a lot of responsibility and freedom to complete your own projects. You need to have strong project management and self-starting skills to be successful.

ConsThere is a lot of bureaucracy, which can be a road block to actually affecting change. The higher development positions can be pretentious at times, too.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the "little people"

Great people, Great atmosphere

Student Worker (Current Employee)
Memphis, TN

I have been working at Rhodes College part-time for more than a year

ProsI feel like I have a work family. They are very understanding if an emergency comes up and you have to come in to work late or can't come in at all. My coworkers also are very supportive of one another as well.

ConsStaff of other departments sometimes walk past the reception desk without notice which indicates a lack of respect for my position.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you're doing.
