    I worked at Macalester College full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very little work. Summer hours are nice. Benefits are above average. Some very nice people to work with and the students are typically friendly and courteous.

    Cons

    If you don't drink the Kool-Aid, you will be miserable. Some (not all) faculty are beyond arrogant and a real pain to work with. Senior IT leadership is unwilling to listen to staff feedback and managers are stuck in the middle. Lots of 'this is how we have always done it' and very resistant to change.

    Advice to Management

    Get off your ivory tower and listen to your subject matter experts. The arrogance of the front office management is unbelievable.
