    I have been working at Scripps College

    Pros

    (Worked at Dean of Students)
    Really nice people to work with.
    Also flexible hours, and you get to learn how to work independently.

    Cons

    Sometimes you have to answer the phone!
    Sometimes the tasks are tedious or you have to do repetitive things like stuff envelopes,
    but this isn't common

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

    Pros

    I loved most of the people I worked with, very cordial yet mostly respectful atmosphere. Benefits such as health care, dental, vision, retirement plans were superb. There was some opportunity for professional development as well as tuition reimbursement, great educational plan for dependents.

    Cons

    Office politics are a serious issue and sometimes interferes with professional dealings. Hiring is usually based on graduating from Scripps or one of the Claremont Colleges and will almost guarantee you a position (even with no experience). Favoritism is also an issue, maintaining the status quo is upheld here when there are certain things that really do need to change for a better educational institution. The ability for promotions is limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be more upper management involvement to quell office politics and favoritism as much as possible. Create far more opportunities for professional development and stick by the policy. Create an advancement program, recognizing the skills and contribution of leading employees to train them for upper management/director positions.

    Pros

    The campus offices are very flexible and understanding of student schedules. While the pay is not great, it is usually above minimum wage, and applying for/getting a job is generally not difficult.

    Cons

    It can be hard to find a job if you are not work-study, but there are opportunities available if you look hard enough.

    Excellent On-campus Job

    I have been working at Scripps College

    Pros

    Working on-campus as a college student is great because they know that you are a student first and my work was always flexible if I needed to miss a day to work on a paper.

    Cons

    Pay isn't super high, but most offices give a small raise each semester or year, so if you stay in one office, you could be making a decent wage by the time you graduate.

    Pros

    Scripps College prides itself on liberal arts education and its students truly embody the values of the college. For student workers, fairly easy to move up the ladder.

    Cons

    Sometimes hard to negotiate salaries. Salaries for students do not really improve over time.

    Pros

    Very nice people. People are usually able and willing to help out when you have a question or need advice about work

    Cons

    Sometimes people aren'y as motivated as I would have liked. Scripps could definitely evolve more in technical aspects
