    I have been working at Colorado College part-time

    Pros

    Lovely people, flexible hours, as engaging as you would like it to be

    Cons

    Not the most organized, needs some work communicating, brand decisions affected by outside management that doesn't always act in the best for the company

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the feedback received from surveys, the festival seems split between the logistical side and the performance side, more communication and clearer goals.

    I have been working at Colorado College full-time

    Pros

    A lot of good people here, all across the campus. Benefits are very good. Campus climate tends to be fairly laid back. Leadership tends to be pretty friendly. Setting is pretty.

    Cons

    Doesn't seem to be a lot of room to move around or really grow, unless you're a staff assistant. When people leave, often nobody else has really been cross-trained in what they do and it results in confusion. Job can take over your life, at least during certain times of the year, especially if you work in Student Life.
