    Pros

    Flexible with schedule Networking prospects Being involved with the school.

    Cons

    -Lots of red tape -ignoring students workers needs in departments. -too much focus on academics, they think anything not academics should get no budget or say. -improper use of student tuitions. -very disorganized, last minute events. Wasting students' funding. -student workers are students too and should have a right to know what their money is being spent on. - No evaluations on how student worker is doing. - no response to misconduct

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to what students are using in the building. Dining hall and Game room are break places for students. the game room is a therapy for students stressing and wanting to belong on campus. Having broken equipment for years and no funding for it is unacceptable. Ignoring your workers and having budget meetings where they are not even on any of the meeting is disrespectful and sets a tone that students workers aren't valued.

    Pros

    You get plenty of time off. Newer equipment (when it works, but good luck getting help from IT)

    Cons

    The President does not have much control on his underlings They continuously try to re-invent the wheel with lackluster results Knee-jerk reactions to everything They allow anyone and everyone to attend. If a student can sign a financial aid form, they can attend

    Advice to Management

    Then the herd a bit and find VPs that work better together for the greater good of the school and not individual gains.

    Pros

    I will say the vast majority of the people I worked with were great. The students were great to work with and most were enthusiastic about their education. Faculty outside my department were easy to work with and communicate with. There is a great deal of enthusiasm and excitement on the campus for its mission and goals.

    Cons

    The area I worked in was not very supportive of family, children, or single parents. Communication from further up the chain of command was slow to travel to others. Where the department I worked in was going, what the plans were for getting there, how I fit into those plans, and communication on my performance were highly lacking. Upper management left no recourse for filing grievances or seeing anything done to resolve issues.

    Advice to Management

    Support those with children. Understand they may be the only caretaker available. Younger children are more prone to illness when in daycare. Communicate plans for your departments and how those working there fit into these plans.
