      Approves of CEO

      I have been working at Georgetown University part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Administrators and department heads are supportive and recognize entry-level employees as individuals. Jobs in Residential Living offer the opportunity to develop a wide variety of skills and provide many avenues for advancement.

      Cons

      The university's system for distributing funds is arbitrary, and your department's resources might fluctuate unpredictably from year to year.

      Advice to Management

      The university needs to more carefully identify and respond to issues with the GU experience for both the end-users and staff. I have seen a lot of frustration from people who have advocated for easily implemented, minor adjustments that would impact them and then felt overlooked.
