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

    Pros

    Beautiful campus nestled in the Upper Valley on the Connecticut River.

    Cons

    I worked for a verbally abusive director for 6 months. I asked HR for help but they were quick to say find a new job and turned the tables. After I left, I did some research... I was 1 of 6 employees that had left over the last 18 months (most with similar stories of the same kind of abuse).

    Advice to Management

    When an employee reports abuse, you should investigate the past interactions with her and her employees (current and past) .

    Good work.

    Pros

    Good benefits, mostly nice people to be around

    Cons

    If you're looking for a mentorship- this is not the place. Supervisor doesn't know what is going on- doesn't seem to care about the project because it's obvious their position is safe no matter what


  6. "Machine Shop TA"

    I have been working at Dartmouth part-time

    Pros

    It is great to get to choose your own hours and learn how to use all of the machines and learn really useful skills.

    Cons

    The machine shop can get messy very quickly and some of the machines are broken or being serviced very often.

    Advice to Management

    It would be great if shop users were encouraged to put their tools back to where they got them instead of leaving them wherever they want when they finish working.

    I have been working at Dartmouth full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The only real pro was that I was getting paid. However, they did not compensate me in accordance with my high level of education nor my skill set. In fact, I think they prefer you to be lazy and unskilled as well as uneducated.

    Cons

    Nearly everything is a con: Pay stinks, they promote their most negligent and ignorant employees, they ask YOU to pay for medical and worst of all, they DO NOT pay you for Worker's Compensation. In fact, they'll send a spy after you to somehow "prove" that you are trying to manipulate their pathetic company. Disgusting sense of ethics, and lack thereof. Never again!

    Advice to Management

    Hire those who actually have the education needed for their roles and treat your employees better. Don't blame the employee for coming to you with a problem--SOLVE the problem instead.

    I have been working at Dartmouth full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Friendly and smart co-workers, flexible hours (unless you are non-exempt), amazing alumni, work can be as challenging as you would like, some managers are fantastic!

    Cons

    Technology/ reporting support needs improvement, difficult to move up/little talent management despite many motivated and hard-working people to work with, culture seemed to be shifting in a punitive direction.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within, develop your talent to have the skills necessary to take the next position on.

    Pros

    Great place to be at. Students are very inclusive and not cutthroat

    Cons

    Meal plan is ridiculously expensive. Not many off campus options.


  10. "College Fund"

    I worked at Dartmouth part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    One of the highest paying student jobs on campus with performance bonuses (i.e., for every 10 donations you bring in you get an hour pay for free). If you are looking for a job that pays you for putting in a little extra effort you might enjoy this place. Also the managers try to make the job fun by playing games like apples to apples while you work.

    Cons

    When I worked there there was a requirement that you had to work a Saturday shift every so often. Though that shift is a little annoying, it's longer than the others, meaning you have the opportunity to make more.
