    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have little understanding of the politics and decision-making criteria of Baylor's upper-level management, and would not necessarily recommend any major changes as a result.

    I have been working at Baylor University (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great, free-going individuals to work with. I had the opportunity to work close to experienced professionals and essential do whatever I wanted to when I wasn't dedicated to a project.

    Cons

    $15 an hour isn't bad for a student but there is an hours per week limit (10). That on top of no real advancement opportunities (essential work study) is kind of a drag.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase budget

    Pros

    The chances to explore the campus are wonderful. I sat in on conferences, was on the court and field for all sports games I wanted to attend, and saw parts of campus I had never seen before.

    Cons

    The times needed to work are not concrete, since photography revolves around whatever time the events are.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
