    I worked at TCU part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working as a student on campus was wonderful! I was able to schedule around my classes and extracurriculars, and work full-time during the summer. Speaking with other student-workers, it seems like my experience was fairly typical. Regardless of the office or department, the on campus employers give good experience while respecting the importance of school.

    Cons

    The only con I had was low pay (minimum wage). Considering it was for part-time work, and my other options since I was in school were mostly retail, this wasn't a big deal.

    I have been working at TCU part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Best place on earth. Great work environment for all positions. Loving and caring student body as well as administration. You can sense the feeling of, "We are all in this together." Great benefits. They will match up to 11% of your salary for your 401(k) after you have worked there for two years. You also get benefits such as the ability to pursue a degree while working there. You can take up to 6 semester hours per semester.

    Cons

    I honestly cannot think of one con!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing. There is always room for growth!

    I worked at TCU part-time

    Pros

    Technology is up-to-date and reliable and there is fantastic freedom within the classroom to teach however you see fit.

    Cons

    The pay is low (for graduate students teaching courses) and the focus is on satisfying undergraduate students and somewhat less on teaching them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your graduate students.

    Pros

    Everyone is friendly. Someone will always greet you with a smile.
    Family oriented community.
    Training is always accessible. There are seminars within departments.

    Cons

    If you don't want to be around college students, I would suggest not working at a university. Hours are strict... pretty much 9-5.

    Pros

    Wonderful women, lovely campus, great speakers and events to attend. HR sponsors great programs.

    Cons

    Still heavily weighted with men in the upper echelons. Truly the women have to be twice as good to be thought of as half as good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take off the gender blinders!
