    I worked at Chatham University full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The campus is very beautiful.

    Cons

    I feel my anxiety rising just writing about it! The worst place!! You are constantly walking on eggshells because at any moment some crazy ego filled maniac is going to tear you to shreds. No humanity. No fun. Never ending workload. Just wrong all the way around.

    Advice to Management

    Clean out all the current management and start over.

    I have been working at Chatham University full-time

    Pros

    lots of good intentions and low-key but warm Midwestern friendliness;
    charming, picturesque campus;
    increasing vibrancy and innovation

    Cons

    unpredictable and sometimes unfair management tactics
    top-down culture of policy making

    Advice to Management

    keep working to improve reasonableness, transparency, timeliness, and power-sharing; otherwise, growth and innovation will be stymied at the implementation level.

    I have been working at Chatham University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    great community with the other tutors
    opportunity to get a certification
    serve an important role helping students
    schedule is completely flexible
    work with little oversight, no manager looking over your shoulder and nit-picking

    Cons

    Because sessions are by appointment you don't know how many hours you are going to be getting
    Good for extra money, but you will need another job
    Sometimes students give up and just drop of the map
