    I worked at Rollins College

    Pros

    Rollins was a wonderful place to work assisting in their daily summer camp program. The staff and administration for the camp were eager to help each other and the campers to learn and succeed in the various activities in which they participated.

    Cons

    The only noticeable issue I had involved the time clock used for camp counselors. We had been asked to fill out a time sheet on top of using the time clock due to some issues they were having with the clock. Nobody checked the filled out time sheets though, which resulted in my having to argue and prove having been at work on a couple of days for which I did not receive pay.

    Pros

    Beautiful campus and facilities with some good faculty.

    Cons

    School with little diversity, especially in regard to income, in the student body. Not particularly friendly to those that aren't in a sorority or fraternity. Would not recommend.

    Former Employee - Communications Coordinator in Orlando, FL

    I worked at Rollins College full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefits here were outstanding. It's one of the few companies I've worked for that offered a generous maternity leave policy, as well as general paid time off. The benefits were affordable and quite satisfactory.

    Cons

    Salaries were a bit low. Upward mobility can be difficult because the benefits are so good that it seemed turnover was low. It's a smaller institution so transferring to another unit for promotion was not always an option.

    I have been working at Rollins College as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Hourly pay, part time work, tuition remission if you are a graduate student at Rollins. You are invited to do training and there are many career advancement and learning opportunities.

    Cons

    The busy times at work are the busy times for your classes (first few weeks, mid-term time, and finals time), but it is manageable with planning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    I worked at Rollins College full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It is an appealing school -- small size, great reputation, beautiful campus, high employee satisfaction (for most), good pay, flexibility, etc.

    Cons

    I think this will really depend on the school/department you work in and your coworkers. I was in a very small department (just me and my manager) but we were within a larger unit with more colleagues around us. The cons for me were this:

    - no real training as my supervisor was way too overworked to commit to any real time with me
    - no team dynamic at all (even though I was around other people they were not very friendly and took little to no initiative to welcome me besides the initial hello...)
    - there is a great amount of "rumbling" under the surface (although Rollins consistently rates high in employees satisfaction people are not really THAT happy... there is a lot of tension between faculty and administration and lack of confidence in the school's leadership)
    - no performance review (I was there a little over a year and never had a performance conversation... It was signed by my manager and even his manager but was never discussed with me)
    - I just didn't feel like I was being challenged (was often bored!), didn't feel like I was being invested in, and didn't feel like I had a real future there

    Pros

    The students and the staff/faculty are all diverse individuals who make the campus a vibrant melting pot of knowledge.

    Cons

    While most college departments are effective, I have found that other offices seem to be performing at a lower level than expected.

    I worked at Rollins College full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    great benefits, tuition remisison, great opportunities

    Cons

    Very political, There's a definite invisible line seperating the higher up administrators from the staff . Not alot of co-mingling between departments. Many personal agendas being pushed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more money on staff morale with things such as teambuilding events away from property and rewarding excellent work. Spend less time in meetings and more time making changes by getting out there in the community with the students and staff.
