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

    Pros

    The professors at SLU are the best in the area. Clinical experiences were the best I could have ever asked for.

    Cons

    SLU is constantly being compared to Barnes Jewish and it can be very disheartening.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to utilize more interdisciplinary efforts to smooth communication.

    Pros

    Ethical, professional colleagues. Safe campus, smart students, relaxed atmosphere. Basically all of the things you want from a big R1 institution without all of the competitive folks that prefer R1 institutions.

    St. Louis climate is not the best.

    Former Employee - Office Assistant in Saint Louis, MO

    I worked at Saint Louis University part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I worked as an office assistant in SLU's Student Life Office (part time, undergraduate employment) for 3 years. It was a great place to work - the staff was friendly, hours were extremely flexible, and we always had a great time in the office. I'm confident that if I were interested in further employment at SLU this prior experience would be very helpful as well.

    Cons

    There weren't any pay raises as far as I can remember, but that is to be expected of part time student employment.

    I have been working at Saint Louis University

    Pros

    There is a ton of ability to network and get the stamp of approval for the St. Louis area.

    Cons

    Like everything else it represents St. Louis because there is a glass door. It sees your skin, race, gender and sexuality. it puts you on display as diversity.
