    I worked at Santa Clara University part-time

    Pros

    Was able to work all four years as a student and then get hired part time after graduating. Higher-ups made it a priority to get me involved in many aspects of the department. You know they care about mentoring the younger employees.

    Cons

    Not really a con, just have to be willing to work weekends during the sport seasons.

    I have been working at Santa Clara University part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    As a student, it is important to me that I establish as many ties as possible during my attendance at SCU.

    Cons

    My time working at Santa Clara University has been overwhelmingly positive and I would recommend it to anyone.

    Advice to Management

    Santa Clara University does an outstanding job of listening to the opinions and inputs of its constituency in order to ensure that the school's value system reflects a place that people want to be.

    Pros

    I genuinely enjoyed working at SCU. The faculty and staff are very nice and committed to excellence.

    Sometimes it is hard to promote up as there are a lack of openings (which is really a "pro" because people tend to work there for long periods because it is a good place to work)

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Santa Clara University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Super positive staff and coworkers. Everyone believes wholeheartedly in the causes that FAI puts time and energy into every day. Great food and gatherings.

    Cons

    The office does not have good natural light. The pay is pretty marginal for the amount of work that goes into the research (which is the meat and veggies of the institute).

    Advice to Management

    pay the students more! allow students to log overtime hours when we do work overtime, instead of cutting them short and adding on to another day...
