    Pros

    GOod school to work for, multiple work study job opportunities. Would recommend to anyone to work there. Great management team within the development department

    Cons

    Low pay for work study. 20 hour maximum for work study despite many students being able to handle more hours. Financial aid however needs work as they are not very educated on loan issues at times

    Advice to Management

    Recommend hiring more students and allowing more students to work over 20 hours if they are able to handle it. College is expensive and every student could use the extra cash

    Pros

    The culture is fantastic. You feel united and part of a giant family! Plus the campus is beautiful! Great medical and retirement benefits as well. Such a great energy!

    Cons

    In my particular department there was no room for growth after I hit a certain point. Further my career and experience was difficult.

    Pros

    I loved working there, the staff were friendly and helpful if we had questions and were clear about what we needed to do. They were also pretty flexible about occasionally changing hours if we needed time for schoolwork or projects.

    Cons

    Sometimes it was a little awkward to wait around until someone had something for us to do. There were a few tasks we could do if the staff were busy or elsewhere but in general we had to wait to be assigned something. We were usually assigned something for the day but once that was done there wasn't a clear list.

    Advice to Management

    Give students a clearer list of tasks and let them have a little bit more autonomy in working. I enjoyed working there though and would gladly go back if I was a student again.

    I loved everything about this position. There are many benefits for the staff and really good pay. I had to quit because I wanted to continue my education in graduate school.

    I cannot think of anything that was bad. I wished the university was located at a better place. Still everything was great
