    Pros

    -Made valuable connections with campus administration
    -Learned series of administrative assistant duties
    -High pay

    Cons

    -Unrealistic time commitment expectations of student workers
    -Employers pushed you to gloss over glaring issues of the college in order to attract prospective students

    Advice to Management

    The demands of a typical student schedule needs to be considered more when creating work schedules, especially for those with other jobs outside of the campus environment.

  3. Administration and tradition stagnates innovation and positive contributions of new faculty.

    Pros

    It's a job. Humanities paychecks are worth something.

    Cons

    You will have the exact same conversations for your entire career with no resolution, movement or innovation. Significant infighting over meager resources between programs and even within departments. No real interdisciplinary initiatives.

    Pros

    A relaxed atmosphere that gives students an opportunity to gain initial box office sales experience.

    Cons

    There is a mix between paid students and students working for course credit, so the hours are divided between many people.

  6. Very friendly people, great work environment, little to no support for growth and development

    Pros

    The people are great. I got along well with almost everyone. It was not a high stress environment. Most people are open to ideas, and most people are rather liberal-minded in general.

    Cons

    There were budgeting issues. When I left . we were getting pay cuts and furloughs after years of no raises. I barely made more than when I started after taking on increasing amounts of responsibility year after year. They did not offer promotion or development. I could have been even more effective with the proper tools and skillset, but they would not allow the time or money for these. That ultimately lead me to seek employment elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out the budget. The state isn't going to give you more money. Get it together with fundraising. It is how it is done all over the country. When you cannot provide raises, offer something else instead....training, extra time paid time off, promotions... You lose good people, because their efforts are not rewarded properly.

    Pros

    The people are friendly. Everyone works as a team. I miss it.

    Cons

    There were budget cuts, and I did really have too many development opportunities, which is what wanted.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you provide development opportunities for people looking to learn more and advance.

    Pros

    Environment- the environment is very relaxed and everyone looks our for one another.
    Team Work- the team work is very well done and everyone is on the same page

    Cons

    Reporting- It can take time for someone to report back to you with information

    Advice to Management

    Only thing I would say is be more time conscious when it comes to replying to emails/questions
