    Pros

    Great opportunity to develop yourself by leading projects, work in team, experience, travel, meet people.

    Cons

    While being a student organisation, and besides all its great benefits, involving yourself too much can have a negative impact on your studies/work and personal life outside of the organisation.

    Pros

    Board of European Students of Technology is very dynamic, multicultural and friendly organization, which help it's members to improve leadership, communication and teamwork skills.

    Cons

    I would rather notice communication problems between the international and local levels of the organization, but it seems that they are most likely resulted by the organization's structure and huge people rotation and probably are hard or impossible to solve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    It is amazing opportunity for students to be part of this organization. You have a great chance to meet people from all over the Europe, you will improve your language skills, soft skills and usually you pick some new skills.

    Cons

    It is student organization and it is obvious that students live like students. So usually they party a lot and it depends on your personality whether you like it now, but for some it can be too much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes put more focus on what are your goals.

    Pros

    Exiting all-Europe organisation, so you can aquire friends from many countries. Opportunity to travel a lot. Democratic style of taking desisions in organisation, even newcomers can express their opinion. Great oportunities for students to work on really big and important projects as Engineering competitions, BEST courses. Also students can take part in one of international comitees and aquire experience of cross-European collaboration.

    Cons

    People always stay people. And students often doesn't have experience of effective communication, so although having regulations of meetings, there is disorder in it in our LBG. We oftent are not attentive listeners. Of course democracy is good, but it can turn into disadvantage when people want to express themselves without listening.
    This automne we have a lot of observers so it was difficult to be distinguished and accepted to organisation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go on, and stay open it is your great advantage
