    Pros

    It's a small school so there is an opportunity to keep many skills current. The size allows using enterprise tools while still being able to deal with each user individually.

    Cons

    It's a small liberal arts college that is undergoing severe financial stress. Facing declining market share and a depleted endowment, aging infrastructure and increasing employee turnover, it decided to go co-ed. The PR bump was helpful for several years. However, it's now old news. It now faces the problem of finding another way of defining it's uniqueness.

    Advice to Management

    The college now needs to find a reason to be able to maintain it's higher than average price for an education. An emphasis should be placed on making successful students who can re-build the endowment rather than just concentrating on the immediate problem of dorm room occupancy.


  2. "Peer Tutor"

    I have been working at Wells College (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent people to work with and a wonderful environment. Freedom to choose your own hours. Megan Riedl, my supervisor, is a wonderful boss, fair, fun, and excellent at delegating to the tutors and study group leaders underneath her.

    Cons

    You are limited in the amount of hours you are able to work due to the work-study student employment program. You also can only work one student employment job, and therefore cannot use multiple jobs to increase the amount of work hours you can get.
