    I worked at Linfield College part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They do a really great job with working with your school schedule and study conflicts if you are a student.

    Cons

    There aren't really any cons. Sometimes the work can get a bit monotonous, but other than that it is a nice work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you so much for prioritizing the students in this work environment, to make sure that school work is always the priority.

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    Great group of people, good communication between lower level employees, positive working environment, great overall experience.

    Cons

    Interaction with upper level management was not easily doable, not a clear vision for all employees to buy into and work towards.

    Advice to Management

    Open more lines of communication between management and ground level employees in order to bridge the communication gap.

    I worked at Linfield College part-time

    Pros

    Taught me how to cold call. Good incentives for getting donations. Everyone is happy to work with you and help you succeed.

    Cons

    In the beginning you get stuck calling recent alumni that have just graduated and are still paying student loans. Sometimes you end up calling people who got kicked out of the school. Cold calling isn't always fun.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Linfield College full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits for employees with children. I took advantage of the Tuition Remission program for two of my children. Also good retirement benefits and satisfactory health benefits. Personal time off is generous; I always have time off when I need it. (If my workload allows).

    Cons

    The workload is too much. The expectations of salaried employees is too high, at least in the department I work in. I rarely work less than a 50 hour week and during certain times of the year I work 60+ hours a week; making it difficult to balance life with work.

    Advice to Management

    I would appreciate a more balanced workload. This could be achieved by better technical tools and training.
