    I have been working at Brigham Young University (BYU) part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, great atmosphere, great opportunities. I love it here. I highly recommend this university to anyone interested in acquiring a high quality education, and great on-campus research opportunities.

    There are many great resources for help, including counseling services, to help students.

    Cons

    If you are taking classes, depending on your major, the course load can be rather demanding. It honestly can be stressful. Thankfully, there are great resources available to help students. There are great sources of support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep loving the students.

    Pros

    The mantra of the Business Career Center is Professional - Community - Enable. There is a special environment where all the student employees feel like they are part of a family. We focus on each other's strengths and love to see each other succeed. Great view, great opportunity to gain valuable work experience, and great people.

    Cons

    It can be demanding at times - working extra hours or stressful environment but with the team support its nothing anyone can't handle.

    Pros

    So as I already said it's a fun place to work. Seriously so awesome, really chill. Come work here with us.

    Cons

    The pay here is just really low. If you can swing that then you'll love working here otherwise you're in trouble.

    I have been working at Brigham Young University (BYU) as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    I loved my coworkers during my time here. They were understanding of personal issues and were open and encouraging of personal growth. They pushed me to succeed.

    Cons

    Some of the management was not as open to change. With the generational difference between me and management, this occasionally made for differing opinions and understanding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change can be a good thing! Especially in keeping up with recent technology and methods of working.

    Great professor to work for. Flexible hours while going to school and you learn the material much better.

    Not the best pay for an engineering TA position.

    I have been working at Brigham Young University (BYU)

    Pros

    The people you work with generally will take time to help you learn.
    Pay as a research assistant is higher than most campus jobs.
    Hours were very flexible.

    Cons

    The job can be repetitive.
    It's a campus job so pay isn't as good as a real world job.
    There's not a lot of opportunity to go up.

    Get paid while you get a degree. Their only interest is in helping you succeed.

    I have been working at Brigham Young University (BYU) part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The professors here are sincerely interested in your development, unlike some professors who may only use you to help in publishing research. The wages for graduate students are much better than for undergraduates. They allow you to work independently and at your own pace. Prime situation for self-motivated individuals.

    Cons

    The hands-off management approach of the professors may contribute to you getting behind on research work when your homework load piles up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing.
