    I have been working at Trinity College (Connecticut) part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good, relaxed working environment. You get close to your coworkers and bosses. I would recommend it to anyone!

    Cons

    The IT department is in the basement of the library, so you feel like you're enclosed. However, some people have desks by the window, which is nice.

    Projects are self-motivated so you can take them as far as your imagination runs.

    Would like more structure in the sense that the supervisor has a clear vision for projects.

    Follow up on employee requests and suggestions to improve the company even if your answer may be no.

    Daytime and Nighttime hours, understanding boss, only on the stand for half of the full time, relaxing, good staff, easy.

    It is really very hot inside the pool area, there are no weekend hours, sometimes kids from outside the college come and have practice and are loud.

    I have been working at Trinity College (Connecticut) full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I've been working at Trinity College for nine years now. Like any job, it's got its highs and lows, but every day I drive to work I feel excited and challenged. The best part about Trinity (even above the great benefits) is the people. Almost all of the people that work here care about what they do, carry themselves professionally, and are always looking to make those around them better too. It's a diverse, talented, and caring staff, and that makes for a work environment that is tough to replace, which sometimes people don't always remember. There is also a new President at Trinity - a very warm person, but also someone that keeps expectations high, which is important at any top tier college.

    Cons

    Some would argue that the location is a con. I would argue the opposite. Trinity is located in Hartford, Conn., a small city that has made great strides in recent years and is about five years away from being a city that people will want to live in, rather than have to. For many, that change has already happened, mostly due to the thriving restaurant scene and noteworthy arts and cultural offerings of the city. Hartford is basically a baby Brooklyn, but with better access to open fields, hiking trails, etc. It's also an easy drive to both Boston and New York.

    Advice to Management

    People don't necessarily understand how good of a school Trinity really is. Stay humble and keep focusing on offering a high quality product, and that will happen.
