    I have been working at Connecticut College part-time

    Pros

    Everyone is very amicable, creating a comfortable work environment. Work expectations are clear and up front. Handling time off is easy and relatively flexible.

    Cons

    Higher ups aren't always the most responsive. This mostly is in the form of replying to emails. There could be more of a push for collaboration across departments.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication from the top would be helpful in executing day to day tasks. This would likely smooth out many existing bumps in the road.
