    I worked at Berry College (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A lot of opportunities if you're willing to look for them.
    Can work directly with professors in ways you can't at a larger institution
    can get even more experience if you're willing to volunteer
    Prepares you for parts of professional and academic life that the majors do not

    Cons

    less funding in the humanities/psychology/etc so study design is limited
    Many opportunities need to be sought it and will not simply come to you

    Advice to Management

    more heavily emphasize research in the major cirriculum
    incorporate more commonly used research technologies in classes: Qualtrics etc.

    Pros

    I absolutely love the full-time staff and the families we work with. It is an extremely rewarding and enjoyable place to be.

    Cons

    Some of the student workers do not work hard enough or engage with the students well and that's very discouraging for those of us who want to see the school succeed.

    I worked at Berry College full-time

    Pros

    Beautiful campus, in fact it is awe-inspiring. Generally good people to work with and everyone is committed to their job.

    Cons

    There's a lot of politics and if you play along, you're fine; if you go against the current political–correctness, then you're toast. New administration does not care about employees who have longevity, in fact they'd like them to leave so they can bring in politically-correct (in their minds) people. I miss working there, but not the people I worked for at the time of my departure.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to the president—wake up and return to Berry roots.

    I worked at Berry College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    My labmates were wonderful, and the supervisor always worked so hard to teach and to help us develop our skills. I loved learning the many different techniques and reading research literature.

    Cons

    Our work depended heavily on the weather. It was difficult lining up schedules.

    I worked at Berry College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The hours are very flexible and they allow you to complete homework and other tasks unaffiliated with your tutoring job when there is no one is in for tutoring. The professors are friendly and willing to help you answer questions if they have time.

    Cons

    The pay is rather low for a college level tutor. There are very few resources available to you so you are mostly on your own if a professor is not there to consult. During test weeks it is a bit of a mess with no means of getting more room.

    Advice to Management

    Try and get the tutors either an answer sheet or at least a general guideline to go through when answering questions. It would make the tutor's life easier and prevent misrepresentation of the material.
