    I worked at Berry College full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    As an alum, Berry is a place that is very near to me and I loved working at a place that means so much to me. For the most part fellow staff and faculty members are very kind and overall the sense of community is great.

    Cons

    Berry does not put a lot of value on their employees. Employees are significantly underpaid and rarely acknowledged for their accomplishments. There is essentially no room to grow within the organization itself and in many cases you have to fight for professional development.

    Advice to Management

    Employees should be offered competitive compensation packages.

    Pros

    great work experience, wonderful bosses, great way to earn money while still enrolled as a full time student and meet like minded students

    Cons

    Freshman year finding a job relating to your major can be difficult but as you search for more work opportunities it's easy to find jobs that compliment your course of study.
