    Pros

    The staff is very easy to get along with and I never butted heads with anyone during my time there as an IT worker. The pay was average for what one would expect as a student worker. Hours were flexible and employers were understanding when hours needed to be switched. As an extra bonus the buildings and the campus itself is beautiful and small in size.

    Cons

    I would have liked the pay to be a little more, but then again I was only a part-time student worker. If one is working as a student worker they will usually push the more physically-demanding jobs onto you, at least in the IT department.

    Advice to Management

    The employees are fantastic, the campus is wonderful, and I hope you keep doing what you are doing.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, outstanding co-workers, lots of experience to gain. Very rewarding, especially when the results of your actions are obviously life changing events for those involved. I'll always remember my time there fondly and highly recommended it to anyone considering employment there.

    Cons

    Typical bureaucracy found in any university or college or corporation. Those passing down policies and procedures to the Department don't always understand that what looks good to them on paper can not always work in practice.

    Advice to Management

    Security management wasn't an issue really. My advice to the decision makers upstairs (VPs, etc) is to LISTEN to what Officers and their management is telling you. They are out there getting their hands dirty every day and night, some for 15+ years. At the very least take what they say into consideration or even ask occasionally for input. They are the voices of experience doing the job, listening to what they have to say is wisdom.

    Pros

    Good hours, pays better than most campus job. Gives you relevant skills for your resume. You get to sit a desk and feel important.

    Cons

    The woman who runs the office is terrible. Her focus should be accommodating students with disabilities. This is not her priority.

    Advice to Management

    More input from Teresa. She is a wonderful person and would be far better for assisting students with special needs.

    Pros

    The school is small, which allows generous opportunity to get to know professors and classmates, everyone knows each other and has enough personal attention to ask question, explore different career track, and grow personally.

    Cons

    life style can be slow at times, there’s not a lot to do in the Beloit area.

    Advice to Management

    be more selective about student admission process. We need good students to build up the school’s reputation in the long term

    Pros

    The people are quite wonderful, and depending on your job you'll be able to do your homework while you work, especially if you're not working in food service!

    Cons

    Student employees make very close to minimum wage regardless of whether they're cleaning toilets or coding the website. That's just plain wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Meow.

    Pros

    Really great group of people. Good opportunities to learn.

    Cons

    Would have been better if there was more room to grow within work study assignments.

    Advice to Management

    Give students who have been good at their work study more responsibility to learn and grow.
