The work is much more gratifying than is the compensation
Adjunct Professor of Project Management (Current Employee), Erie, PAFebruary 8, 2015
Pros: gratification
Cons: compensation
The compensation for the time devored to lesson plan development and class preparation is not as great as the compensation that is received. The pay is less than minimum wage. Why do I do this? For the gratification of developing future project managers.

No support for the C.I.M. project
Network Administrator (Former Employee), Erie, PASeptember 24, 2014
I was part of a program that Gannon only cared about the financial income provided by the local sponsor. There was never any real support for the intended function of the program as defined when launched. As such the whole CIM center devolved from a real Computer Integrated Manufacturing project into just another Microsoft office training lab, Such a shame

Graduate Lab Assistant, Electrical Engineering Lab (Former Employee), Erie, PASeptember 19, 2014
The first day for me was an astonish-able .I learned how to deal in an technical world. How to re-order the work with a flow chart methods. The hardest part of my work was to deal with the new component they were using for the PCB layout design. The most enjoyable part is to deal with the new gadgets to be newly launched in the market.

Teaching through peer mentoring
Student Mentor, Go College Mentor Program (Former Employee), Erie, PAJuly 11, 2014
Pros: fieldtrips and working with students
Cons: work schedule frequently changes
A typical day at Go College consisted of tutoring students, working alongside teachers and councilors, running errands, assisting in planning trips for the students, and running summer camps kept us busy. Each student who worked for the Go College program were students from the same college and made it easy for everyone to get along and find a commonality. This job out of my many through college taught me almost as much as college had itself. The school I worked at was an inner city school that had violence, gang fights, poverty, along with many students barely passing classes. It taught me to be more patient and a whole new perspective on school and how other people were raised. It was quite a challenge some days trying to figure out how to get some kids to pass or to convince others why college is important, but it gave me as much as I put into it. I truly enjoyed my experience working at this facility.
