    I have been working at St. Francis Xavier University as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    The people you make and the skills you develop are amazing

    Cons

    As new hires get added on you can find yourself very easily replaced or forgotten amongst the sea of students.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to put in a program that facilitates the constant leaving of student employees, any positive changes are often completely forgotten by the time a new person takes on the role. Makes it really hard ot move forward.

    Pros

    The students look to you for advice and generally respect you.

    Some staff have been there for a very long time and are stuck in their old ways and not wanting to change things.

    Continued education or workshops for employees to keep them up to date with current practices.
