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

    Pros

    Haverford has a lot of really wonderful work-study options and I have gained a lot of work experience during my time here.

    Cons

    Everyone gets paid the same base salary which is a little bit annoying when someone gets paid to do their homework and other people are actually doing work.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Haverford College (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great over all employee Benefits.

    Cons

    When management does not like an employee they make up things on employees and tells the manager to make sure that when they do their reviews that they put negative reviews. How can employees have excellent annual reviews and no sick days and no call outs be fired? An employee with a known disability was fired, They are not following the employment laws as they should.

    Advice to Management

    Get qualified management.

    I worked at Haverford College part-time

    Pros

    Very generous and flexible with hours, management are very understanding of circumstances outside of work. The coworkers are great, and everyone is oriented towards helping employees.

    Cons

    It's a small community, which can be both a positive and a negative. Overall, such a positive experience there are few cons

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing! The changes over the last few years have been phenomenal, and have made for a very positive work environment

    I worked at Haverford College (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    A lot of nice people.

    Cons

    Too many not so nice people. Perks are given for sucking up, doing a good job isn't taken into consideration. Some senior staff are horribly mean and two faced. Their so called transition is a means to get rid of those who don't follow the agenda. Unethical practices. To much control going to BM college with a horribly low endowment raises concern - merger

    Advice to Management

    Transition to new management - or old management. Go back to letting the students and staff participate in running the school, in reality, not in theory

    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.
