    Former Employee - Tour Guide in Amherst, MA

    I worked at University of Massachusetts part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Resources under all departments: Academics, transportation, events, student organizations, advisors, study abroad options, job opportunities, and financial aid options. The design of the campus itself makes getting around easy too.

    Cons

    Too many choices, which can become overwhelming. There's also lots of construction going on because of their 50 year plan on giving the 150 year old university a beautiful tune-up and additions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on keeping on with that 50 year plan.
