    I have been working at University of Dayton full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nice academic environment
    Fancy equipment for materials analysis
    Good advisor and lots of project funded by Air Force Base

    Cons

    salary is low
    Good reputation of UD is well known in OH, but no as well in other states

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be a good transition position before you find a position at the Air Force Base, more opportunities there if you prefer to work in industrial.

    Current Employee - Student Assistant in Dayton, OH

    I have been working at University of Dayton part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Getting job experience in college. Gaining experience in customer service is important for almost any career path, and a student job will almost always have that component.

    Cons

    Not all of the available campus jobs are set up in a way that takes into consideration a student's schedule.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As a university employing students, classes and homework need to be taken into consideration when determining student employee responsibilities and regulations.

    I have been working at University of Dayton full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The whole university is geared towards executing and living out the Marianist mission. Employees live out the mission in their work - especially in interactions with customers or students.

    Cons

    As with many Catholic institutions, pay can be below industry standard. A new raise structure is being implemented in the Research Institute that will award top performers competitive salaries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reach out to young employees with career development opportunities.
