    I have been working at Haverford College full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly environment with lovely people.

    Cons

    Dont expect a pay raise more than 2%. Which if you are an hourly employee that's cents on a dollar. No where to move up or incentive to be better at your job.

    I worked at Haverford College as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Haverford pays rather good salary to student workers
    Everyone who wants to work gets to work (at least when I was there)

    Cons

    The school is very small and doesn't have many opportunities
    All services (careers, administration) are under-developed, because the school is so small.

    I have been working at Haverford College full-time

    Pros

    Consensus is a community ideal.

    Cons

    The aim to be inclusive and attentive to diverse points of view can lead to obstruction and manipulation of process.

    Advice to Management

    The infrastructure for systems - accounting, maintenance, administrative support - is currently too lean and in spots, broken. Salaries for all staff are sub-par. The College is stingy with staff other than faculty and offers very little in the way of positive feedback.

    Pros

    Student workers at Haverford get paid more than their Bryn Mawr counterparts. We also seem to have more positions available.

    Cons

    As a student worker, not much. However, full-time staff workers do not seem to have much communication with administration and upper management. Things are always delayed and changing.

    Advice to Management

    Please listen to your employees and students, and then be proactive.
