    I have been working at Georgetown University full-time

    Pros

    Great atmosphere and the school has an amazing national and international reputation . It is hard work but it will pay off.

    Cons

    Hours can be difficult , and DC shuts down at 5:00 pm,. Georgetown is also somewhat isolated from the rest of the city and you often need to take the shuttle from Virginia

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing, but be sure to take good care of the professors and students. They are the lifeblood of the school.
