    Wittenberg University is a great institution with fantastic students, faculty and staff. Everyone is friendly and an over-achiever.

    I worked at Wittenberg University part-time

    Pros

    - assisted professors in day to day preparation of their course work
    - great work environment
    - friendly professors and staff
    - adaptable schedule for work study positions
    - beautiful campus

    Cons

    - occasionally tedious and seemingly pointless busy work
    - minimum wage pay for the position, especially when it requires previous skills and experience, is not enough to begin to cover the cost of tuition.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps Wittenberg and other universities could offer some more specialized departmental positions -- beyond basic work study -- that would not only give the student-worker necessary experience in their particular field, but also would warrant slightly higher pay that could go a long way in compensating the extreme cost of higher education. Otherwise, it would make no financial sense for a student to keep working for Wittenberg, when bagging groceries or flipping burgers could offer a more competitive rate.

    I worked at Wittenberg University (More than a year)

    Pros

    This was a good place to work and it led to a lot of good experiences. I liked working for my professor and assisting him with his research. I had flexible hours with my heavy work load which was nice

    Cons

    I do not believe there were any cons to this job. I was a sophomore so the work I was doing was about as had as I could have handled and the hours were great

    Advice to Management

    none

    Pros

    I had wonderful colleagues - friendly, helpful, humble, fun to work with. The cost of living in Springfield is very low as well.

    Cons

    At the time the university had severe financial problems. It may be a little better now, because administration is being more realistic about it, but I think the challenges are ongoing.
