    No opinion of CEO


    -Extremely convenient to work on campus while in school -Everyone is very understanding that school comes first and extremely flexible to my class schedule


    -Limited desk space. Moved around a lot -Can be quite political and long processes to follow

    Advice to Management

    Be open to new ideas. Just because something has been happening every year does not mean that it should continue if it no longer benefits the school or makes sense strategically.
