Pros

The student population is terrific to work with, and you cannot pick a more attractive location to work. Senior leadership has great ideas for moving the Colleges forward and working to make the student experience better.

Cons

Sometimes there can be red tape/politics in Higher Ed that reduces efficiency and slows down potential improvements.

Advice to Management

Don't let politics impede progress.

    I worked at Hobart and William Smith Colleges part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly people on staff, good benefits, not very hectic in any department. The students are great to work with and always changing.

    Cons

    Not a lot of room for growth, most of the people you help graduate and move one, leaving no connections

    Advice to Management

    Apply a set of goals to be met that will advance an employee in the company

    I worked at Hobart and William Smith Colleges (More than a year)

    Pros

    They offer excellent benefits. You will have nice coworkers. The President is a really personable guy who knows most everyone by name.

    Cons

    They don't pay very much, the work is incredibly difficult and under appreciated. Most students are really entitled and get whatever they want if they make a big enough stink.

    Advice to Management

    I think people need higher wages to afford to live and take care of their family. Also, if you give an entitled student whatever they want, you don't teach them anything.
