    I worked at Webster University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fast environment that tends to pickup during the start and end of enrollment sessions. The biggest upside to this position is getting tuition remission for education. I was able to earn multiple degrees while working here. Getting to interact with students and faculty is a great way to network and mingle with the community. Long winter break while campus is closed for Christmas.

    Cons

    Base salary is low and benefits are high. People simply don't get paid enough to worry about the details at Webster.

    Advice to Management

    Don't cut down the little guys, help us.
