    I worked at The College of New Jersey full-time

    Pros

    Supportive work/life balance. Eickhoff dining hall was under $8.00 for the whole facility. Wonderful food choices at all the stations. sushi station, salad bar, international cuisine station, etc. For the most part, supervisors were willing to train and were agreeable to allowing employees to take classes during their work day.

    Cons

    Some management had no idea how to motivate or inspire staff. They needed to take training on managing employees.

    Advice to Management

    Do not talk down and condescend to your employees. Give them the opportunity to share ideas/suggestions and then implement them. employees need to be heard, they need guidance and respect.
