    Positive Outlook

    I worked at University of Massachusetts Dartmouth (More than a year)

    Pros

    You can learn a lot of things during work.

    Cons

    Not a lot of choices.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more opportunities.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at University of Massachusetts Dartmouth full-time

    Pros

    The working hours are flexible

    Cons

    The management is pretty disorganized with a lot of dept politics


  3. Resident assistant

    I worked at University of Massachusetts Dartmouth full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great experience for college students to be involved with on campus, resume builder

    Cons

    Living in your job 24/7 stinks, residents can easily abuse knowing where you live and seeking you out versus finding appropriate staff.

    Advice to Management

    Investigate first then make a decision, don't make a decision then investigate. Some students become RAs to help with the money burden of college

    Pros

    Basically what you would expect from a part-time research associate position. Flexible hours as long as work was completed.

    Cons

    Smaller university means less money available. Learned to work with less (can be good, teaches people how to not be wasteful.)

    Advice to Management

    Need to spend more time writing grants and less time with bureaucracy. There is always politics where ever you go.

    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule Best supervisor on the university campus, always fair, consistent, and understanding. Pay was fair for the amount of effort and responsibility required of the position.

    Cons

    Unstaffed due to funding issues beyond the supervisor's control. Unprofessional behavior from some staff (immaturity in most cases)

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to stop expecting to run a 50+ workstation student design lab with only a skeleton crew of one or two staff on hand for emergencies and security. It is only the devotion of the supervisor, her staff (and some of the students who help out) that prevent a disaster from happening.

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    Benefits, pension, and not much more.

    Cons

    Very strong double standard. Administration does not work with employees well.

    Advice to Management

    Stop creating positions that are 6 figures. Don't be so title driven and give everyone the same respect that you feel you deserve. AND you wonder why you can't retain students or employees! Look beyond your own noses and you will see lots of great stuff!!!!!
