    I have been working at Mount St. Mary's College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Laid-back environment. All of the student staff are very friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    Some of the offices have rude employees. The college prides themselves on helping women succeed by providing many options of study but there is not an equal amount of resources in all of the departments. (neglected art majors: FILM, art, theater, music)

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees, especially student employees with respect. They are paid minimum wage and are juggling classes so do not ask too much of them. After all, they do the same work that others are doing who receive above minimum wage.
