    I worked at Saint Louis University as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    It is a nice place to work. Nice people, flexible schedule, peers are friendly, interesting projects. I would recommend others to participate.

    Cons

    It would be great if some of mentors were a bit more supportive to the students in regard to the projects assigned. Besides that, all good.

    I have been working at Saint Louis University

    Pros

    Great school with lots of helpful teachers. Work load is reasonable and you are the sole instructor of your courses from the get go. The students are good for the most part.

    Cons

    Very little prep work, so the first term can be rough. Some of the lower level students just do not care or try hard.

    I worked at Saint Louis University full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    By far my coworkers and supervisor were awesome. Environment is relaxing and fun, always having great conversations with students. Excellent benefits too!

    Cons

    The pay is poor, raises were hardly given. They would double my work load with no upgrade or raise.

    I worked at Saint Louis University full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    They were understanding of student workers' needs to spend time on homework. School came first, before the job. The position was very flexible for the most part with respect to work schedule.

    Cons

    There is not much room to advance your career and the pay is not great, but that is largely made up for by the fact that they are willing to work around your school schedule.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more definite opportunities for raises. Even if it is not a large raise--if workers know that after every 12 or so months they will get a raise, that would keep people motivated.

    I have been working at Saint Louis University full-time

    Pros

    Good, supportive co-workers willing to work hard to solve problems and find the best solutions. Some areas have a good work-life balance. New president seems very good.

    Cons

    Some areas are very old school and operated like it's the 1950s working on a factory line with their employees as cogs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management needs to understand the SLU mission and follow it.

    Pros

    The growth of the human condition. Teenagers become adults in a very structured environment. The have the opportunity's for free expression but are balanced by an education that balances them and allows them vto discuss their differences.

    Cons

    The new administration must be consistent in its' views and beliefs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be somewhat less impartial.
