    I have been working at Lewis & Clark College full-time

    Pros

    I've worked here for 3.5 years, and love the people I work with and the benefits. For hourly employees, the union is a great resource employee rights.

    Cons

    They have been in cost cutting mode for as long as I've worked here. We're still being asked to do more with less. When an employee leaves, in most situations their duties get passed on to others and the positions aren't filled for awhile, if ever.


  5. "Fun"

    I have been working at Lewis & Clark College full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The union regulates working hours and bargains for decent benefits. The campus is stunningly beautiful and students are generally very friendly and eager to work with you.

    Cons

    Salaries for support staff are not bad, but not completely livable. That's common with a lot of support staff salaries, but if you're interested in advancement there isn't a pathway upward without obtaining a masters degree (at least).

    Advice to Management

    Provide career pathways for support staff looking to launch a career in academia that may or may not require graduate studies.

    Pros

    Great school with lots of potential. Friendly students and staff. Small campus/student body.

    Cons

    People think to much about every little detail and forget about the big picture.

    I worked at Lewis & Clark College part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked for different departments at L&C, IT, Student Support Services and Student Accounts. I had a great experience with all the department and they have supportive staff.

    Cons

    I did not have any bad experiences with any of these departments.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support your student workers.

    I worked at Lewis & Clark College full-time

    Pros

    Lewis & Clark College is a great place to work. Working for the college is very rewarding. It is a place of growth and knowledge.

    Cons

    There isn't a true negative to working for the college but some can view being in a union as a negative. From my understanding, most if not all hourly jobs at the college are part of the union.

    Advice to Management

    Please continue to look for what people are capable of. My managers always saw what potential I had and always fought for me to succeed.

    Pros

    Intelligent and a passionate community with a strong will to help students succeed in multiple realms of life (not just academically)

    Cons

    Overall no complaints however the school is a bit less diverse than they claim
