    I worked at Barnard College part-time

    Pros

    As a student worker, Barnard was very understanding of my priorities. They definitely accommodated my schedule and understood when I was very busy during midterms and final exams.

    Cons

    The administration is a bit of a mess. Many offices do not talk to each other and sometimes administrators were unprofessional. There was little room for growth as a student worker--no promotion opportunities. After working 3 years in the position I was not given an exit interview.

    Advice to Management

    Create more opportunities for employee feedback and review.

    I worked at Barnard College full-time

    Pros

    They have pretty good benefits.

    Cons

    There's no room for growth or any kind of transparency with management. They just don't care about their employees.

    I have been working at Barnard College

    Pros

    Benefits- time off, tuition assistance Helping the students who will be tomorrow's leaders Good location- Morningside Heights right off of the 116th st stop on the 1

    Cons

    Top-down style of management makes it difficult to have any impact over your work. No room for growth and lack of respect for staff

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees before you implement changes. Sometimes things do need to change, but often they were being done that way for a reason.
