    Common to many universities, students tend to perpetuate negativity through complaining a lot instead of focusing on the positive. I.e. people are stressed out. But there are lots of resources here to help manage that though.

    I worked at University of Vermont part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Really strong community. The Admissions counselors treated the student representatives with respect and not like children. I gained valuable communication skills. Even such a specific role in admissions there was room for advancement.

    Cons

    The time frame is very specific which excludes a lot of students from applying and can limit employees class selection.

    Advice to Management

    Change the CD playing in the Lobby every now and then.
