    I have been working at Macalester College part-time

    Pros

    Macalester College is a highly welcoming place to work. I work as student staff for four years at International Student Programs. They are the warmest office of all campus.

    Cons

    The staff efficiency of this office can be low sometimes due to its casual atmosphere. Student staff play a big role in many programs.

    Advice to Management

    There is a good structure of the office. Just need more communication between staff I guess.
