    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!

    I worked at TCU part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Working in Student Affairs during a restructuring and facility enhancements did not take away from the camaraderie and cordiality among my colleagues. Very well-organized but not micro-managed, Student Affairs stood out as a very satisfied division.

    Cons

    The students aren't all terrible, but in fact friendly and cordial. However their lack of imagination and creativity was sometimes frightening. Human Resources needs an internal audit as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Student Affairs understands current trends in higher education, but are some of these trends worth adding to the price of tuition? There also seems to be a large divide among divisions. I sometimes felt like I didn't know anyone else outside of my division!
