    I worked at Southwestern Law School full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    A stable work environment and depending on which office you work in, you may be asked to work weekends or after work hours for student related events. Opportunities were occasionally available for those outside the department to assist in these events. Staff were generally friendly and professional, and those that wanted to keep to themselves did. Professors were friendly to work/interact with. Staff have access to the gym used by the students, and parking and a cafeteria were available on site. This is a good place to develop basic administrative skills and your work style, especially if you are still trying to figure out your career path.

    Cons

    Tensions exist between departments/staffs and can be passive agrressive at times, although this can be found at many companies. There is a preference to stick with old or existing methods and a hesitation to adopt new methods. Interaction with students can test your patience and can be difficult to find space away from them to take a break or have lunch. There are very few training opportunities and opportunities for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve inter-department relationships, be open to new ideas, and increase training opportunities.

    I have been working at Southwestern Law School

    Pros

    It is pretty low-key and straightforward what one's responsibilities are. The atmosphere is laidback and one can work at his/her own pace.

    Cons

    The management can be lax and interdepartmental communication is not the greatest. There needs to be more of a cohesive effort and spirit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some pointers from other companies and actively improve working relationships and not just go with the status quo. Seek out career development and training.
