    A great place to work

    Graduate Student

    Graduate Research Assistant (Current Employee) Provo, UT

    ProsPeople shared your beliefs if you're Mormon. If you aren't, things are difficult and awkward. People are generally friendly.

    ConsAwkward place to be if you ever want to express differing opinions. Not an environment conducive to all types of learning

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Was a research assistant and had an amazing time and learned a lot!

    Research Assistant (Former Employee) Provo, UT

    ProsSo much fun! A great environment. The professor was amazing to work with. I learned so much doing research with the psychology team! The grad students were awesome as well. It was great to see some of the amazing research that is going on at BYU and to be a part of it!

    ConsThe compensation was pretty good. There isn't really any room for promotions because the graduate students are usually the ones running the show, but as an undergrad you expect that.

    Awesome Coworkers, flexible hours

    Teaching Assistant (Current Employee) Provo, UT

    ProsAwesome Coworkers, hours are really flexible for most jobs. My boss is awesome and gives great advice.

    Conskeeping track of your hours with y-time is annoying because the program is buggy, but my boss was always nice about doing manual time card changes

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt would be great if Y-time were improved, its buggy and drops punches sometimes.

    Good jobs for busy students.

    BYU Early Morning Custodial (Former Employee) Provo, UT

    ProsBYU Staffs seem to be very interested in their employees as people and try to work with each individual and his or her unique circumstances.

    ConsVery difficult to work more than 20 hours during Fall/Winter semesters.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure to continue placing greatest importance on the student's education. Sometimes their tasks at work are vital to their education, but don't let their work get in the way of their education.
