Great place to work, very social town...most distractions are away from the town. Everyone always willing to help easy part of the job is when you are assigned to grade and receive all necessary documentation needed to fulfill your job
Hardest part is when students try to undermine your authorities and complain with a nonvalid reason
Great place to work. Filled with bright people and academics. Lovely Campus. Provides opportunities to interact with some of the sharpest minds. The professors are all very friendly and extremely professional.
Working with student-athletes can be an amazing but challenging job. A large majority of the time you are teaching students who did not sign up for tutoring. This means half of your job is finding creative ways to engage the student while the other half is teaching content. However, the staff is amazing and always willing to help you.
Can make your schedule
Student athletes have tight schedules meaning your hours are not always ideal.
Graduate Research Assistant (Current Employee) – Clemson, SC – February 17, 2017
Nothing special, good weather, small city, nearest airport in GSP. Clemson has a great football team and the game days are awesome. I am a graduate student and I don't work as a full-time employee to write a better review
You make your own hours and enjoy teaching students something new and cool in the field of computer science. Assembly language is one of the hardest to teach but the most rewarding. The professor that over sees the TA program can be difficult
Information System/Business Analyst I (Current Employee) – Clemson, SC – February 8, 2017
Clemson is a great place to work and grow. Typical day is to supporting management as will as project managers, QA team, customers and development. Sometime all tasks are complete and some do not work out.
I enjoy working at Clemson University and have learned how to expect anything at any moment. It's a very diverse workplace and there is always something new happening on campus. The majority of the workers are nice and compassionate. The hardest part of the job is advancing, since it is such a large establishment and there are so many applicants for each available job that is posted.
Residence Hall Director (Current Employee) – Clemson, SC – January 4, 2017
Clemson is a unique university to work for. It is a large STEM school with a lot of very bright students. A typical day at work is never "typical" because the nature of the job varies depending on student needs. Work life balance can be difficult as a live in staff member because living where you work can cause boundaries to be blurred. The department casual is relaxed and casual allowing employees to create their own work schedules as long as things get done. During times of crisis the department can be reactionary which can cause high stress for it's employees if not managed properly. Overall the department is good to work for and provides opportunities for professional development often.
Collaborative environment, flexible work hours, development of students, professional development, long breaks
Minimal work life balance, times of micromanagement, long hours
