    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

    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.

    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.
