    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Worcester, MA

    I worked at Bridgewater State University full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    strong emphasis and support for dynamic teaching; small class sizes are common; many internal grants for scholarship and travel to facutly; progressive and innovative upper administration supports new ideas

    Cons

    many individuals in all levels of administrative roles throughout the university act in a manner that enables personal prejudices and opinions of other facutly and staff to impede productive work or student success; insufficient or missing leadership training provided to administrators across the campus at all levels

    I worked at Bridgewater State University part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, you could pick up several blocks or only do a couple hours per week. Helped you stay fresh on your own work while helping others.

    Cons

    Really odd and cumbersome way of submitting time sheets that lead to some tutors frequently missing out on their pay for a period altogether.

    Pros

    The Conference and Event Services office has a great staff who cares about student workers' success! Very flexible and accommodating to student schedules.

    Cons

    When I worked for CESO, the staff was spread out across the campus instead of being in one central location. I believe that has changed since I graduated.

    I have been working at Bridgewater State University full-time

    Pros

    some good people invested in providing a solid higher education experience for students

    Cons

    very bureaucratic, antiquated systems and processes, no competitive program offerings, lots of talking with very little doing

    get rid of the obstructionists- they are tarnishing the school's reputation.

    Pros

    Very nice place to work. Nice people everywhere. Great benefits. Students are great to work with. would definitely recommend working here.

    Cons

    upper administration seems out of touch with staff. More concerned with keeping faculty happy than staff that run the school.
