    I have been working at Georgetown University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Enhancing the skills in video filming and editing.
    Attending different panels and events for free.

    Cons

    Usually we just need to settle down two cameras and don't need to move them anymore. The videos we created have less creative part.

    Advice to Management

    Not just do the simple event documenting, but do some creative video production.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Georgetown University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, location, and lots of opportunities to transfer within Georgetown
    Must take advantage of educational perks!

    Cons

    Poor pay, 4th re-org in the past two years, high turnover, unhappy employees. Emphasize Jesuit values, but they do not practice what they preach

    Advice to Management

    Motivate and encourage employees! Stop hiring people on the basis of favorites. The high turnover rate isn't a mystery and must of the problems that occur are at the senior leadership/executive level.
