    I worked at Marymount Manhattan full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I was able to really build up my resumes in the amount of work I was given. New projects and college wide initiatives included my office, which meant I was very hands-on with the brainstorming. I was also able to run with most ideas that I had.

    Cons

    Lack of supervision of Assistant Directors, Directors, etc. of different departments by the college leadership. Small college means you can't really move up.

    Advice to Management

    Check in more often with lower level employees to check on their experience in the office.
