    I have been working at Morehouse College (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Benefit Packages

    Like many large firms, most colleges and universities have a very appealing benefit package to provide employees for the work they do for the school. Each department may have a somewhat different package to offer their employees and like most businesses packages can be slightly better than others depending on the position or title being held at the campus.

    Payed Holidays

    Payed Holidays - Each school has a list of the payed holidays that each employee is entitled to. Usually if the employee has to work on a particular holiday they are compensated an additional 1-1/2 times regular wage. Some prefer to say double time and a half for a payed holiday.

    Payed Sick Days

    Payed Sick Days - There are a few different ways to accrue sick days. Some give you the days in the beginning of the year and some have to earn the sick days by the amount of time worked in a week.

    Payed Personal Days

    Payed Personal Days - The same goes for personal days. These are can be supplied at the beginning of the year so that each employee gets so many hours or days through out the year. Or they can also be accrued though out the year depending on policies or contracts.

    Payed Vacation Days

    Payed Vacation Days - Vacation days are usually based on the amount of time worked in a week. For example 3.5 hours of vacation time is earned on a bi-weekly pay period.

    Overtime Pay

    Overtime Pay - There can be overtime pay if schools are short staffed or a lot of work has to be completed to perform and meet a certain obligation or task. This pay is usually 1-1/2 times normal wages.

    Health Care Coverage

    Health Care Coverage - Coverages for health care not only vary from college to college but also from state to state. Health care packages are for individual and family medical expenses. Changes to health care policies can can year to year. These can best be discussed with the human resources department.

    Dental and Eye Care

    Dental and Eye Care - Dental and eye care is another benefit that is offered but in some cases an extra deduction and or co payment is necessary. Glasses generally can be purchased at a discounted price and this option is up to the employer and the policy provider.

    Free Tuition

    Free Tuition - This is a very valuable benefit if it is offered which most schools do offer to their employees and sometimes to their immediate families. If this offered it should be taken full advantage of. Education can make that next promotion or job opportunity much more tangible.

    Uniform Supplemental Pay

    Uniform Supplemental Pay - For some positions a uniform is required or special clothing. If it is required to wear a uniform the university generally supplements any clothing expenses.

    Discount Tickets to Sporting Events

    Discount Tickets to Sporting Events - Sporting events to support the students can be fun whether working for a college or not. If going to a sporting event most always employees get a discount.

    Yearly Wage Increase

    Yearly Wage Increase - Yearly wage increase is almost a guarantee to compensate for living wage. Some increases are more generous than others depending how well the school is doing in student enrollment.

    Advancement Opportunities

    Advancement Opportunities - Raises in pay or advancement opportunities come with any job and schools are always looking to advance their best employees to keep them with the organization.

    To Sum Up

    So as you can see there are great deal of benefits to working at a college or university. Schools are continually recruiting as new employees as positions open for the simple fact that some people retire, some move on to better paying jobs whether it be home or abroad. Other positions become available because employees might have had to be let go for example a reason like the employee was unreliable or was taking to much time off.

    Cons

    It has its fair share of politics. Working at Morehouse can easily put you in a box.

    Advice to Management

    Professional development should be encouraged and promoted. Also there needs to be more perks implemented.

    I worked at Morehouse College (More than a year)

    Pros

    The college campus is an ideal environment to conduct research. The faculty are of high quality and are committed to helping students achieve their goals. It's a great place to work.

    Cons

    There may be inconsistencies in the quality of the experience. The outcomes is really dependent on your professors research habits and how well you relate to his or her style. Sometimes the professor can be very demanding, while other times he or she can be very flexible.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend improving payroll's attitude towards customers. It can be rather tedious to get ones paycheck.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Morehouse College part-time

    Pros

    Learn to be in a work place environment whilst working with students and lecturers at the same time, good for time management practices.

    Cons

    You are working around students and lectures you interact with, no much exposure to new people, sometimes spend the rest of the day in the same building both schoolwork and work study time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep adequate time sheets, and don't press it too hard on students, most students are there to supplement their income or pocket money.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Morehouse College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours including hours outside of the business day. Time sheet reporting is very efficient. Little micro management of on duty tasks.

    Cons

    Demand of work can vary based on times of the semester. During midterms and finals expect much longer hours than at the beginning of the semester.

    Advice to Management

    Check up on tutors to ensure that they don't need any tools that would help them better serve students such as supplies, memo books, or scheduling tools.
