    Pros

    Westminster College is a private liberal arts college in a big city. People are very committed to students.

    Cons

    Westminster College allows some class sizes to be so small (6 students) that the college loses money. Hopefully the new president will build stability.

    Advice to Management

    Offer growth opportunities to your staff and faculty.

    Pros

    Very relaxed place to work. I watch movies and hang out in my managers office all day. It's fun to flirt!

    Cons

    It gets old sometimes

    Advice to Management

    You need to seriously clean house. With the new President I would expect him to look at really what the upper management does with their time. A lot of two faced people work here!

    Pros

    The people that have been there a while are the best.

    Cons

    The new hires within the last few years have a whole different ethical outlook on higher education.

    Advice to Management

    Believe in what you are doing. When you're there for other reasons, it's pretty obvious.

    Pros

    You do get to set your own schedule, since you are a student first and foremost and classes take precedence. If you have a test or major assignment due, there is usually the possibility of being able to arrive a few minutes late/leave a few minutes early in order to study or take care of academic matters. You also get to meet with many different kinds of students from across the world that visit the campus.

    Cons

    As a student, there are no possibilities for promotions or addition of responsibilities in any way - your job is very static. The pay is not good, but most students look that over since you don't have to drive anywhere to work. You are only limited to a maximum of 20 hours per week.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice to do some more things for student workers - contests, events, etc. Nothing major, but something that keeps it exciting.

    Pros

    The community of Westminster is supportive, friendly, and allows employees to have pride in their job. The time off, benefits, and retirement packages are great. Additionally, tuition assistance for the employees and their families is a great perk.

    Cons

    The pay can be low, probably because of the great benefits. Additionally, the culture tends to treat you like family - which has its drawbacks. Employees are often asked to take on more and more work without compensation or commiserate titles because it is the "duty to the college." Additionally, incompetent employees are seldom let go. Rather they are moved to other positions or departments rather than enforcing expectations that they should be able to perform in their position.

    Advice to Management

    Reward top talent and trim dead weight. Additionally, look at people in upper positions and evaluate if it is time for a change.
