    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Wofford College full-time

    Pros

    Wofford is a great place for an entry level position and for those who are willing to take ownership of their position.

    Cons

    Wofford has a very strong culture and makes it difficult for outsiders to come in to the "circle". The lack of financial support for sports and their assistant coaches hurts their ability to retain staff.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees and don't forget who works around your campus. Continue to work on improving salaries for current coaches as well as reward those that have made a difference to the programs.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Wofford College part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Legitimate job experience that has impressed future employers. As a development associate, students learn real skills that are useful in future jobs.

    Cons

    Very boring, and the people can occasionally be rude. inconvenient times that conflict with lots of campus events. You actually have to work as opposed to other campus jobs where you mostly do homework with an occasional task.
