    Pros

    You work for the greatest school in the nation. You also get the honor of working for President and Chancellor Ken Starr. The people are great and the campus is beautiful.

    Cons

    I didn't have any negative views/thoughts while working for Baylor. I loved every day at that school.

    Pros

    Great benefits and university perks go a long way. There was free access to the gym, discounted meals at the dining halls, university holidays and more. They do a very good job of providing for the faculty/staff.

    Cons

    Nothing I can think of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'd like to see more diversity between senior levels of the Baylor administration.

    Pros

    All my bosses have been incredibly willing to talk to me and always make sure I put school first. Sometimes that meant working 4 hours a week, instead of 12.

    Cons

    Because I am a student, the hourly pay was relatively low. However, it looks good on a resume.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your interns well and set expectations.

    Pros

    Work study jobs were great professional development to accompany education. Everything was really flexible to work around the student schedule.

    Cons

    Many work study jobs are minimum wage, and with scheduling sometimes hours would be low. Other than that it was great.

    Pros

    People are generally honest. There is a lot of opportunity if one just goes out and finds it.

    Cons

    It is a religious institution. The chapel is VERY VERY cult-like.

    Pros

    The campus is growing. There has been a lot of investment in developing the infrastructure, as well as, the human resources. Campus life is calm and fun, great for research. Good workout spaces and facilities. Many family activities year round. There are seminars on teaching and learning every semester where professors can share their experience. There is development in campus, new stadium coming Fall 2014

    Cons

    Long working hours, although mostly by choice not necessarily a requirement.
