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

    Pros

    The campus is gorgeous and most of the staff are extremely nice. Awesome holiday time off as well as an amazing benefit package.

    Cons

    This college is a very liberal atmosphere. If you are at all conservative, you might have a difficult time.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Haverford College (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The nicest people you will ever meet work at Magill Library. They totally spoiled me and ruined for post-grad employment because they are so nice and forgiving!

    Cons

    The work can be boring and is mostly oriented towards faculty research. But what else do you expect from a work-study job?

    Advice to Management

    You are great! Never change! The building needs some major enhancements though.
