Terrible financial management
N/A (Former Employee), BostonJuly 14, 2014
Pros: flexible schedule
Cons: awful pay, heavy use of adjunct faculty leads to low quality instruction
The University is very poorly managed financially. They charge students an arm and a leg and pay very little to the faculty and staff. The administration only cares about pushing for large class sizes as tuition is their only source of revenue. What started off as a wonderful teaching job with wonderful students ended up being my biggest regret. I would – more... not recommend working here. – less

office assistant (Former Employee), Boston, MAApril 16, 2014
Pros: flexible work hours

I learned a lot at my job at Suffolk University. I learned how to make appointments. I furthered my skills in Microsoft Word and PowerPoint. I learn how to work as team to get big projects done faster and more effectively. Management at my jobs was excellent. My boss understood that the workers were college students and let us focus on our work when – more... we really needed too. I think the most enjoyable part of the job was connecting with the Government Professors, and bonding with fellow Suffolk students – less

Workshop Facilitator and Promoter (Current Employee), Center for Learning and Academic SuccessApril 10, 2014
A typical day consists of checking with my supervisor for any upcoming lectures that need to be presented and prepared. I am constantly editing and adding content to the presentations on Prezi. I then work with fellow members of the promotions committee regularly to promote our department on campus through social media, and other on-campus advertising. – more... My co-workers are all very intelligent students in their areas of focus and they all look to share knowledge with everyone in the department. The hardest part of the job is finding new ways to get students to use our voluntary academic support programs. The best part of this position is that it allows us to work all over the department as receptionists, tutors, lecturers, and as promoters. I get to express my creativity within this position and get to display my enthusiasm. – less
