Positive Outlook

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

Pros

The people you work with will for the most part be smart, kind, considerate. You will get time off if you need it. They hire from within.

Cons

Small place in a small town means a small salary. Lots of gossip. Lots of grunt work.

    I have been working at Hendrix College part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent learning experience
    Prioritization is possible if you have connections

    Cons

    Pay is cut to minimal and then even more so
    Do not be fooled by the words "full time," they can define it as 25 hours a week


  2. "The work I did on a daily basis made a positive difference in the lives of the students"

    Pros

    Great sense of community; department and co-workers are passionate about the work that they do. The institution seeks to blaze its own trail. In many areas, it purposely avoids following the crowd.

    Cons

    Because it is a small institution, multiple jobs are required of most employees. Office space is at a premium; shared work spaces and lack of privacy are common.

    Advice to Management

    Staff salaries are not competitive with other educational institutions or the business world. Because it is a private college, major donors' giving has a huge impact on programs that are funded and buildings that are constructed. Not all are necessarily within the mission of the college. Don't forget your Methodist roots! It often seems like you are purposely promoting anti-Christian values.
