    Pros

    Get to study while working. Work directly with advisors who are good with people. Hours are great for college students.

    Cons

    Not much to do besides study and the occasional task. Pays minimum wage and is not challenging whatsoever. Can be boring at times and keeps me from having leisure time in schedule.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to utilize the talents that each one of your employees has, making the job more exciting and reaping the benefit of everyone's talents and passions.

    It is a great school. Town is small but really affordable. Pay is good enough.

    Pros

    A very beautiful campus. Friendly people. High ranking in science(My Field). You enjoy the environment and the traditional events. The leadership is wonderful.

    Cons

    The only bad thing is the city is a little small and there is not much fun in there as a large city. However, the university itself has many events.

    I have been working at Baylor University part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good to work for some of the professors, they are encouraging and helpful and want you to do your student job well. Others will demand big things with little specificity, this can be stressful. I had a very independent outside-type position and really enjoyed what I did. Others won't be as lucky and will get stuck behind a help desk providing mundane information to others.

    Cons

    If you get a bitter secretary for your training, one wrong move will cost you in office politics, but this is the real world. That will be the case anywhere.

    Great Place to Learn and Grow

    I worked at Baylor University

    Pros

    Great school and atmosphere. Small classes and knowledgeable professors. Definitely a school on the rise. Great Accounting program. Sic 'em

    Cons

    Stereotypes are heavily present. Lots and lots of sorority and fraternity members that are exactly what you would imagine them to be like. Obviously many that also break the mold though. Beware of ring by spring.

    I have been working at Baylor University part-time

    Pros

    everyone works together well
    good benefits
    good pay for area
    the ability to collaborate and work in different environments is there but the communications between departments is lacking and therefore hurts the science in which novel ideas may be stifled or never come into fruition because they are unaware of the options

    Cons

    lack of variety
    heavily weighted religious efforts
    too many GREEK life kids
    there can be some favoritism within departments which happens everywhere but I would like to think its not too bad here

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be more lenient with pushing your religious fervor
    expose kids to more

    I have been working at Baylor University as a contractor

    Pros

    The professors are very kind and more than willing to help out if you have a problem. The student to teacher ratio is great relative to state institutions.

    Cons

    The engineering school is still developing so it does not quite have the name recognition.
