    Middle managers are not strong, not sure why but seems to be consistent across the board in administrative department heads.

    I worked at Susquehanna University full-time

    Pros

    The student community is amazing to work with.

    Cons

    There has been a lot of turn over due to the changes in leadership. Those in the leadership positions for student life may be a better fit for a different department.

    I worked at Susquehanna University part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked mornings, which suited my schedule. I worked with a variety of students, which was very interesting. I worked with several full-time employees, and I learned a lot during my time there.

    Cons

    It was only part-time so there were no benefits. One of the jobs that I had was getting the caps and gowns ready for graduation, which involved going into a basement storage area, which was a bit creepy.

    Advice to Management

    I don't know if this position even exists anymore or not. I think it was a fun job for me at the time, and I really have no advice. Things were well done and orderly, and everyone I worked with was great.

    I worked at Susquehanna University part-time

    Pros

    Small school environment, ability to work closely with students to help reach language goals, professors that truly care about student success and are highly qualified in their fields

    Cons

    The administration has become too big to fail while students and faculty suffer the costs. Language departments will become weaker due to professors being let go and the Modern Language Department being understaffed, especially for a school that has both a language and a cross-cultural study requirement. Bad enough that they recently decreased the minimum language proficiency from 3 semesters to 2, despite the fact that 100% of students participate in a cross-cultural study, and the goal to have more of those students study abroad in non-English-speaking countries.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication between student workers, departments, language students, and maintenance staff responsible for providing access to buildings. It's hard to help students seeking tutoring when the available classroom changes every week and none of those locations match the one provided to students in their classes about available tutoring services.
