    I worked at Mississippi State University

    Pros

    - In school job experience
    - Work with computers on the enterprise level
    - Learn how to work on a team and proper I.T. related business practices
    - Lots of overtime available during summer and fall/spring breaks
    - Real world experience
    - Learn to have better interpersonal skills

    Cons

    - Older workforce having to work with (requires more explanation and personal skills)
    - Summer time is very mundane and tedious work, but fall is very easy (but can get boring)
    - Not everyone respects what you do and thinks it is easy (but will always asks for your help)

    - Student and Faculty can get annoying when asking you to fix simple tasks such as plugging in a Ethernet cord, or changing their ink
