    I have been working at Arizona State University part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    As a student worker, your schedule is very flexible, so you get plenty of opportunities to study and do homework even though you are working part time.

    Cons

    The compensation is not great, but since the work we do is fairly simple, I can't complain too much. We don't get much time off, since we are only given a handful of sick days, but other than that it is alright.

    Former Employee - Systems Support Specialist in Tempe, AZ

    I worked at Arizona State University (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Tuition waiver - was able to complete school for a fraction of the cost.

    Cons

    Pay is low - and they recently lowered the pay bands so new employees are even worse off. Departments do not communicate and collaborate well - different units in the same department have no knowledge of what the other is doing. Poor communication. There is no solid framework for how you are evaluated in your job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay fair wages - I understand that it is non-profit org. but compared to other city/state jobs the pay is significantly lower. Let employees know how they will be evaluated and what they can do to grow and help the organization reach it's goals.
