Loved my time there

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Haverford College

ProsExcellent bosses, pretty easy going, and good pay. You can really find a job that's a good fit for you.

ConsSome of the positions are a lot more intensive than other student positions, but everyone makes the same salary. Students working in low intensity jobs have time to do homework while on the clock. But this is not really a con.

Working in Quaker Higher Ed

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Haverford, PA (US)

I have been working at Haverford College full-time

ProsConsensus is a community ideal.

ConsThe aim to be inclusive and attentive to diverse points of view can lead to obstruction and manipulation of process.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe infrastructure for systems - accounting, maintenance, administrative support - is currently too lean and in spots, broken. Salaries for all staff are sub-par. The College is stingy with staff other than faculty and offers very little in the way of positive feedback.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Student worker

Student Worker (Current Employee)
Haverford, PA (US)

I have been working at Haverford College

ProsStudent workers at Haverford get paid more than their Bryn Mawr counterparts. We also seem to have more positions available.

ConsAs a student worker, not much. However, full-time staff workers do not seem to have much communication with administration and upper management. Things are always delayed and changing.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease listen to your employees and students, and then be proactive.
