    I have been working at Bard College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Reasonable pay, currently at $9.7 an hour. Also good experiences can be found if you are proactive and search around for them.

    Cons

    Pay is only $9.7 and most jobs don't have different pay amounts.
    Also, not that many software positions for the Computer Science department.

    I have been working at Bard College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible, exposure to actual working departments (no undergrads to get stuck teaching)

    Cons

    can be a bit boring sometimes, but that pretty much goes with the territory

    Advice to Management

    Some departments have a hard time making the most of their workers. TAs are often left without hours.

    I have been working at Bard College full-time

    Pros

    Awesome, intelligent colleagues who are passionate about their work.

    Cons

    Inflexible, conservative higher-ups who want change but thwart almost all attempts at achieving it. Little upward mobility; rigid hierarchies.Transparency and communication across departments is wanting.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on retaining talent than on cutting costs if you want to stop hemorrhaging employees.
