    Pros

    Decent pay for a student position. Good experience working with professionals. Faculty and staff seem to really appreciate it when students go above and beyond...something about them thinking we are the 'entitled generation'

    Cons

    It can be a bit monotonous, but that's to be expected in a student position. They also limit your hours to 20 hours/week. However, sometimes you need to work more than 20 hours to finish tasks...so you end up working without pay.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out a way around the 20 hours per week rule. Maybe if we work more than 20 hours one week but less the next you could carry the hours over to the next week so we still get paid for all of our time.
