Great way to help students achieve academic goals
Assistant Director (Current Employee) –  Hunter Army Airfield, GAOctober 19, 2016
I loved the fact that I can help students with their degree plans and obtaining there career and educational goals.
Administrative /support staff works hard.
I learned that one must always be willing to learn new things.
A typical day starts with emails, reviewing budgets, telephone calls, completing tasks, recruiting and scheduling appointments.
Pros
flexibility, short hours on Friday
Cons
Supervisory team, no organizational structure

Coordinator (Current Employee) –  St. Louis, MOSeptember 6, 2016
Turnover rates are currently sky high which means staff is having to take on the added tasks of their departing colleagues. Hopefully, Webster will take this opportunity to create an environment in which employees feel adequately rewarded and recognized for their contribution and once again feel proud of being a part of Webster University.
Pros
Tuition benefits
Cons
Low growth potential. Poor employee morale. Poor pay.

.The culture is stagnant and depressing. The management does not relate to those in the field. Its a business not education. Salary nothing to look forward to.

Department Associate (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCMarch 10, 2016
The typical work day goes by extremely quick because you are always busy. This is the in the field of education so you can assume that you don't make much money. This is the perfect job to get the entry level worker ready for their professional career.
Hardest part of the job is keeping up with all the deadlines every week.

Housing Customer Service Associate (Current Employee) –  St. Louis, MOFebruary 15, 2016
A typical day at work is working with students and parents, providing and helping with any questions or concerns they may have about living on campus or the University in general. I learned to be patient and problem solver. My co-workers are great, we work hard and get along very well. There is no hardest part of the job when you enjoy and are committed to what you do.

Excellent Work Environment
Senior Adjunct Faculty (Former Employee) –  Greater St. Louis MissouriJanuary 4, 2016
As an adjunct faculty, I enjoyed the opportunity to meet and teach students from many countries and across the US. Although the timing for testing and grading was tight, the staff support coupled with excellent facilities and equipment allowed me to never miss a deadline in 28 years.

As a perk for being a highly rated instructor, I was twice given an assignment to teach courses in Bermuda with all expenses paid by the university.
Pros
Facilities, staff support, independence
Cons
Tight schedules

Good employer; academic environment. Part-time, so not much to say - enjoyed the opportunity. Class sizes were very reasonable. Students were dedicated and interested. Only down side was classes were too easy and the organization could strive to instill more rigor and higher expectations of students in the course design.

Could use more rigor in courses
