    I have been working at William & Mary part-time

    Pros

    Working in Campus Recreation is fun and student oriented.The hours are flexible and work is very enjoyable if you have an interest in the field. Lots of perks, such as apparel and travel for conferences.

    Cons

    Working with students is challenging at times and requires patience and understanding. Also, since this is a service oriented business, taking time to talk to patrons and offering great service takes away from work that needs to be done.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be understanding of the hours everyone works and the time spent towards the service and not just behind the desk

    I have been working at William & Mary full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Wonderful benefits, plenty of time off, laid back atmosphere, casual on most levels, great to interact and mentor students

    Cons

    Too many meetings, too many committees, slow in implementing change, most departments are short staffed due to limited budgets, but processes are not simplified to reflect the levels of staffing and issues are handled slowly

    Advice to Management

    There are way too many committees and the process of implementing change is very slow.


  10. Undergraduate Teaching Assistant

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    I was flattered to be offered the chance to be a teaching assistant, and there was a lot of flexibility.

    Cons

    I was flattered to be offered the chance to be a teaching assistant, but the pay was really mediocre for undergrads. I did it because I thought it would look good on my resume-- it might a little, but you're probably better off doing your own schoolwork.

    Advice to Management

    I would reevaluate whether its appropriate to have undergrads doing this job, or at least offer a little higher pay.
