    Organization is very diverse and cares about each employee. Provides great benefits and many opportunities to learn.

    I worked at Gallaudet part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    My positions were as a student assistant, and a building supervisor for the Office of Alumni Relations. They were great at letting me be flexible with my hours, and giving me the chance to focus on my education. My Executive Director, and Assist Executive Director that I worked with all were very supportive of any projects, and building supervisor that I worked on.

    Cons

    The only downside was that I graduated, and i could not work in my positions anymore. My building supervisor position was reduced to a part time contract employee working hours.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. You all are tremendously!
