    I have been working at Brigham Young University (BYU) part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    As a student, the flexible hours were a huge bonus. This on campus job enabled me to work between and after classes, and was a great fit for me.

    Cons

    Low Pay Compared to other developer positions off campus. This was a trade off I was willing to make.
    Hard to justify studying when I could go and do work and get paid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great work environment and people. I loved the staff and the projects I worked on. The time reporting system was a little buggy, and didn't allow me to input what I had done in the hours that I worked. Wished the system had that functionality.

    I have been working at Brigham Young University (BYU) part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    It is fun working here, the people I work with are great and very friendly. Since it is an on-campus job, it is relatively easy to do, and the commute is super simple since I'm already on campus for school anyway. My boss is great, she understands that we are all full-time students with busy schedules, and allows us some flexibility in our schedule.

    Cons

    Challenges of working here include hours; sometimes I have lots of homework that I need to get done, but I have to come to work and focus.

    Pros

    BYU is a very value-based and family-based school. As such, every policy and rule is focused around that. It's a great place to work.

    Cons

    Being in the college environment can cause some employees to lose a bit of focus due to other demands such as school and family, but everything gets done.

    I have been working at Brigham Young University (BYU) part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    They are very flexible with my schedule. Great work experience. It has given me great experience in an office and shown me of future opportunities.

    Cons

    It is not very diverse, often times the same routine day after day. Also sometimes wish that I was given more to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management is great and very understanding. There is no advice I would give in regards to management because I think they are doing a great job.

    I have been working at Brigham Young University (BYU) part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    As an undergraduate student, I was treated as a graduate student and I was able to research without a lot of red tape. The professors fought really hard to keep me funded.

    Cons

    It required a lot of work during school, and sometimes I was a little over my head due to my lack of experience.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, pretty good pay for TA ($10/hour), even had some paid training opportunities

    Sometimes tedious work, not awesome job security because it was dependent on the number of students in professor's classes that semester.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I really liked management and office culture. Karen is the best.
