    I have been working at Indiana University of Pennsylvania part-time

    Pros

    I've learned a lot about web analytics in a short amount of time under my boss, the web director of my university. I love that I am mantaining the overall appearance and mobility of the university website. I've worked in SEO, basic editing, site content mapping, and have knowledge of HTML 5 coding, and am now given responsibility to do certain IT help tickets as they come in from different departments.

    Cons

    If you're not keen on detail, this isn't a good job for you. Thoroughness is a must. You learn as you work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the web team meetings and workshops

    I have been working at Indiana University of Pennsylvania part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The office culture within the American Language Institute is fantastic. The assistant director is organized, supportive and responsive. Some instructors are doctoral candidates while others are working professionals. All members of this community care for incoming ESL students and demonstrate strong commitment to their academic, professional and linguistic improvement.

    Cons

    There are few full-time opportunities available. Part-time employees sign contracts each semester and their pay dates are staggered.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, the experience working as an instructor and supervisor has been great. I wish something could be done to regulate part-time instructor pay dates.

    Able to study at work. Built great relationships and professional contacts. Able to make money while still working towards an education.

    Working with coworkers who were full time employees and not student workers could be difficult at times.

    Advice to Management

    Make clear to full time workers that students are there to help while still a full time student, and to not take out their frustrations on the students.
