    I worked at Dallas Baptist University full-time

    Pros

    The work atmosphere is positive and encouraging. The professors I supported were interesting to work with- they all have a variety of experiences to learn from. Supporting students with various needs was fulfilling and a great way to be a part of the academic community. DBU also provided two full paid classes, so I was able to work and earn my Master's degree- a very big pro! The full-time faculty and staff also work with a lot of students, so it was a positive place learn the responsibilities of a full-time, professional job.

    Cons

    At times the performance expectations were not clear- I experienced changes in department leadership while I was there. There did not seem to be a lot of room for growth within the academic department I worked in- unless you were professor in that field.

    Advice to Management

    It would be great if there were more encouragement in career development- what that would have looked like within the department or into other areas.
