procurement (Former Employee) – Charleston, SC – October 11, 2018
My time at the college of Charleston was very enjoyable. You meet so many wonderful people. There is a real family-like community there. My management was amazing. I had the opportunity to grow in my career. The pay is not so great, not many opportunities for raises outside of cost of living unless you truly fight for it but luckily they offer many benefits.
Management is adequate. Much of my environment is in need of an upgrade. People I work with are nice and supportive, however, give it a few months, and someone moves on. We seem to be understaffed; if someone calls off sick, it is hard to find a replacement. You have to pay for parking. You can purchase a yearly pass or pay $10 a day. This is ridiculous and I see no reason to essentially take money out of your paycheck to park to go to work. Yes, riding Carta is free however, the buses only run certain hours and their is no convenient location for me to get to from my house to one of the Express stops.
Resident Assistant (Former Employee) – College of Charleston – June 26, 2018
I worked as a resident assistant for the past two years. It was great chance to meet new incoming students, but the benefits did not outweigh a lot of the issues that we had to deal with on a daily basis. We did not get paid nearly as much as we deserved. Additionally, my floor partner and I had a room that did not have a common room like all of the other rooms in the building (including the other RA rooms). Residence Life and Housing were not willing to give any type of compensation for the issue and still made us pay the same amount when we were missing a big part of the room.
Great educational institution, but with no opportunity for advancement in area of research administration. Faculty do very little research, as this is
Director of Research (Former Employee) – Charleston, SC – April 18, 2018
The College of Charleston is a relatively small liberal arts college with its primary mission as teaching. They do a great job of this, but have few extramural grants or contracts. The culture is wonderful, but not so much for research.
TUTOR (Current Employee) – Charleston, SC – April 5, 2018
• Assisted students with the learning and understanding of R programming. • Taught students how to run a vast array of statistical analyses and how to use different packages in R. • Spent one on one time with each student to ensure understanding of the basics of the R programming language. • Covered the foundations for use of Rstudio in order for students to be confident in writing R code without my assistance.
Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Charleston, SC – March 28, 2018
Worked here as a student and moved up to a full-time position, stayed for a few years before moving on to something else. Great if you want a laid back no pressure job, not so great if you want to feel like you can make a difference
