    Pros

    Very flexible job for students who are wanting to work and make some money but also focus on school. Staff is great to work with and they are very understanding that school comes first.

    Cons

    Monotonous work, a lot of data entry that requires you to stare at computers for a long period of time.

    Advice to Management

    Create more content for students to work on.

    Pros

    Coming to Wyoming is great because you will be able to get lots of individualized attention (the classes are very small). Also, the professors are very accessible and the support from other campus services (financial aid, office of the register, exc..) are always prompt and able to resolve most issues in one trip.

    Cons

    The city is very small: there is not very much to do here and if you want more than Walmart you will have to travel two hours or so. Additionally due to the small size of the school there are a lot of just awful teachers for the low level entry classes, making learning difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with improvements to campus, keep the student activities (especially the Friday night drinking alternative ones - as almost everyone drinks), and continue to keep the low tuition.

  6. Great place to school

    Cons

    You have to initiate what you want to do.

    Pros

    Excellent colleagues, forward thinking environment. Facilities are first class as is the quality of the workforce. The students are some of the best I've been exposed to. Decent benefits, and excellent flexibility in work schedules.

    Cons

    Salaries have been flat for nearly 5 years due to economic downturn. Although the legislature has finally passed a budget that includes some increases, the overall impact of the "no raises" has been that we've begun to loose talented people, especially researchers and support staff. Salaries do not compare well to other regional institutions.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work hard at bringing salaries nearer to par with similar institutions.

  8. Great

    Pros

    Really easy simple jobs. Can often study/do homework while at job post.

    Cons

    Have to makeup being interested in "becoming a leader" if you say you're interested in the benefits they automatically black list you.
    Some bureaucratic rules like if need repairman, can't directly call repairman instead have to call repair man's dispatcher but if that person out then stuff stays out of service until next day.

    Advice to Management

    Summer Resident Assistants are helpful since they're always around, but during fall/spring semesters the people hired for RA jobs seem to be hard to find.

  11. My experience has provided and given me an opportunity to learn and grow as person and as a top notch employee.

    Pros

    Learned how to multitask, learned how to set priorities, learned how to create systems for myself and learned how to meet deadlines and keep up with a steady work flow.

    Cons

    Working for a leadership who came in and ripped us apart and changed our departments way of work.

    Advice to Management

    Always build honesty within each other and appreciate each other's work. We all need each other.
