    I worked at Baylor University part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people made the job. Great atmosphere and overall organizational culture. Everyone is very supportive and helpful with any situation that you go through. If you want to work at the best university in Texas, look no further.

    Cons

    Little bit of a cramped work space. And there could be some down sides to having to work in Waco. Definitely not a deal breaker though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep building up the student workers!

    I worked at Baylor University full-time for more than a year

    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.

    I have been working at Baylor University as an intern for more than a year

    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.
