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

    Pros

    Student jobs are really well organized. Good pay and interesting jobs. It's easy to get a decent amount of hours, too!

    Cons

    The process of finding a job is a bit complicated for students. It would be better if the various offerings were better broadcasted.

    Advice to Management

    Continue what you're doing. Maybe offer more student jobs throughout the campus, it would be nice to see opportunities in dining services.

    Pros

    Winter break. Upper Valley community.

    Cons

    Three choices of health plans, none of which is great, but that's everywhere. And HR exists to protect the corporation, not the employees, but that's everywhere too.

    I have been working at Dartmouth full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The location and campus are excellent. The people I work with are also excellent. It has the quaint feel of a small New England town and there are many outdoor activities.

    Cons

    While the location is beautiful and the township of Hanover is really nice, there can be some aspects of living here that are difficult, especially if you are not from the Northeast. Nearby Lebanon has a lot of familiar stores and shops, but the Upper Valley area can feel somewhat secluded and cut-off from shopping that is common to urban and suburban areas in other parts of the country. Airport access can be difficult at times too. Boston is just over two hours away. Manchester and Burlington are about an hour and twenty minutes away.

    Advice to Management

    My time at Dartmouth has been excellent. A little more parking around the southern and eastern parts of campus would be helpful.
