    I have been working at Hood College (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good people and work environment. Beautiful campus. Tuition benefits are a plus. Vacation time is generous. Good entry level job opportunities for someone who is interested in graduate school.

    Cons

    Low pay, no raises or opportunities for growth. There are people who've worked at the institution for ten years with increasing responsibility who have never received a raise. Most people leave after they use the tuition benefit.

    Advice to Management

    Comparable compensation is needed to retain talented staff

    I worked at Hood College (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Every department I worked with was very accommodating in terms of working with my schedule, as well as seeing that was able to get the maximum number of hours available, as provided by my

    Work was dependent on faculty and student needs, so you might do nothing for one eight-hour shift, then be hammered for two hours the next day.
