    I worked at Spelman College full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most of your coworkers are awesome!

    Cons

    They seem to be outsourcing and management treats the employees like children. It's very political right now with the new president and management is throwing their employees under the bus to save themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Stop undervaluing your employees.

    I worked at Spelman College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours
    training courses were clear and short in length
    the info was valuable and up to date with current tech trends
    very savvy with compatibility for every student's needs

    Cons

    work duties during school wide events
    sometimes felt like we couldn't have any events that catered to the growing trends
    students only come to us when then need us during midterms and finals
    not visible, or seen to be less important by students

    Advice to Management

    give the student workers more responsibility
    let them put on more school events that compete with SGA programs; the popularity and visibility of the office would increase

    Pros

    Specifically as a student employee, working in the Provosts office is easily one of the best jobs on campus. Everyone in there is do supportive and understanding. They always emphasize that school work comes first and will change your schedule accordingly

    Cons

    I honestly can't think of any. It would be nice if there were a little more space for the student employees but, I know that's hard to change.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing, Mrs. Walker is the best!

    I worked at Spelman College full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You have to the flexibility to work on special projects outside of your department. As an Alumna, I looked forward to that.

    Cons

    No growth potential, low pay, and under handed management and not open to change. Every time a suggestion was made, it was virtually shot down with no usually no explanation. Management is stuck in their ways and just keeping a seat warm until retirement.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to change and be more accountable for your actions versus passing the blame.
