    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Transylvania University part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working with like minded individuals, I got to represent my university, great job for young professionals, working under friendly management

    Cons

    There is a lot of turnover in the department I worked in. It was great for experience but I didn't see it being a long term career.

    Advice to Management

    Consider better benefits for employees in order to discourage turnover. Also listen carefully to student concerns. They are intuitive and represent the future of the university.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Transylvania University full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Tuition compensation; leadership experience; working with some residents and colleagues; overall the pros did not outweigh the cons and I would never recommend this position to any student at Transylvania University

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations on students as employees; took advantage of non-hourly wages; safety was compromised when expected to make rounds across entire campus at 10pm, 12 am and 2am; paid me less while requiring more work hours because of assigned residence hall placement; did not respect suggestions or concerns

    Advice to Management

    Respect student feedback and safety concerns; respect student time; update residence halls; hire professionals to enforce policy on the weekends; never require RAs walk alone across campus

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Transylvania University full-time

    Pros

    Depending on the department you're in, the work-life balance is very good. The people are very down to earth and friendly. The students are intelligent, mature, and hard working for the most part. Generous with time off and personal/sick time.

    Cons

    Lacks diversity in the student body. Not much upwards mobility. Still stricken with politics especially higher up.
