    I worked at Notre Dame of Maryland University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Super flexible schedule, I could literally pick any time I wanted to do the work and it was no problem. Also, I was not managed heavily so I could do the projects how I wanted to.

    Cons

    There wasn't really that much for me to do or an organized way of telling me what projects I had to do.

    Advice to Management

    Have a better schedule

    I worked at Notre Dame of Maryland University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Student workers on campus are a boon to the campus and the student. There are a variety of options and hours are flexible. I worked in the career center and gained valuable administrative skills. It was convenient to work on campus. The pay was not high, but more than minimum wage. Overall, a good opportunity for a student to gain experience and extra money. Campus is in a great location.

    Cons

    The cons are very minor. The administrative at NDM is not well-organized and it occasionally causes problems or issues. Student workers, however, are only minimally effective by this dysfunction. Also, this is an impression from several years ago. The president of the university is new and things could be smoother.

    Wonderful opportunity to build resume.

    Advice to Management

    Higher salaries.

    I have been working at Notre Dame of Maryland University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Hmmm, beautiful campus, SSNDs are lovely people

    Cons

    Hierarchical! Though I've worked in corporate and private environments I have never worked somewhere that was less willing to include employees in decision making, and this is a place that touts inclusivity and decision sharing. The Enrollment and Development offices seem to foster and reward mediocrity; lowering the school’s standards for student acceptance, producing promotional materials that lack a clear position and are poorly executed, a web site that is riddled with misspellings and inaccuracies, and staff retention averaging one year. It's no wonder that enrollment continues to decline and that alumni giving is down.

    Advice to Management

    New President, Dr. Yam, needs to clean house.
