Pros

Gorgeous physical environment. Rigorous yet nurturing & collegial atmosphere. Dedicated faculty/staff/students. Wonderful traditions. Surprisingly diverse student body.

Cons

Outdated technology, little money for research due to emphasis on teaching.

Advice to Management

Wellesley excels at building a sense of community that crosses traditional faculty/staff/student barriers usually existing in academia. Mind you don't lose that; it keeps Wellesley special.

    Pros

    They processed all paperwork other than the initial forms I needed to fill out. I lived on campus so I could directly ask questions.

    Cons

    I am not quite sure because I worked more under the professor than the college. But the professor was extremely understanding, encouraging, and kind.

    I worked at Wellesley College full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Beautiful place to work, relatively low stress, great benefits, smart and intelligent workforce, student body, and faculty.

    Cons

    Relatively low pay in administration roles, very little opportunity to advance in your career.

    Advice to Management

    Hire and advance more people from within rather the looking outside all the time. Be more flexible with salaries, raises and bonuses for employees.
