    Pros

    Learn valuable repair skills Plenty of down time for homework higher salary than most student jobs great manager flexible hours

    Cons

    little to no upwards mobility, but at a college job this is expected clients can be annoying, as usual with tech support

    Advice to Management

    The manager is great. She is willing to be flexible in terms of hours and accommodates almost anything.

    Pros

    I love working for TCNJ! I transferred here from my old state job and I'm so glad I did. My last job I had a great Bureau Chief, Supervisor and Manager; they were very supportive, but Administration above them, was problematic, to say the least. As a result of the poor top level management, morale was very low. Here at TCNJ, I also have great managers/supervisors etc... In addition , I have to say that TCNJ Administration, as a whole, is supportive. There are so many pro-employee policies and services in place. It is obvious the those at all levels of the administration TCNJ value their employees. As a result, we are happy to put in extra effort. I'm happy to volunteer to help out at special events when I can.

    Cons

    My problems lie with the NJ STATE GOV not TCNJ

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing

    Pros

    Tight knit community of academics and students, with a very nice (and uncommon) balance between teaching and research. Amazing level of transparency for tenure and promotion

    Cons

    Salary low compared to private institutions and a plethora of policies and service work make some days stressful. Not located in a major city.


  7. Great job tutoring because managment is open to new ideas and wants you to succeed! The culture is very indepedent.

    Pros

    The culture is very indepedent as management trusts that the employees are doing their jobs, the pay is very good for students to earn some extra income, and you decide your hours.

    Cons

    Have to keep track of everything that you do which can take time and hard to make detailed and their is not much friendship or bonding between employees.

    Advice to Management

    Less paperwork might help to keep everything moving, but you do a great job with listening to the staff and helping those you employ to become leaders.

    Pros

    What I like most about working in Res Ed and Housing are my friendly peers and superiors. All in all, they contribute to a very welcoming environment.

    Cons

    Training was lacking, so there was a steep learning curve. It is difficult to fully train for my position, however.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, but be more supportive during the first few weeks and months so student workers can be sure they're doing what they need to be doing.

    Pros

    Free housing, leadership experience, management experience, flexibility, amazing team

    Cons

    Many things you have to learn from experience even after going through the summer training you are not really ready to handle some of the extreme situations

    TCNJ pays better than most per course, and I have found it to be very collegial.

    Like most adjunct work, there is not a lot of opportunity to move into full-time or tenure-track work.
