    I worked at Arizona State University part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, even if you are part-time. Dependable employer. Other things (such as flexibility, work-life balance, office environment, etc.) depends completely on what specific department you are in and which campus you are based. One employee's experience will be completely different from another's.

    Cons

    Pay rate for hourly employees is on the low side, but they offer the tuition waiver as justification for the lower rates.
