    Pros

    I love the academic setting. CMU is less formal than some universities. Lots of diversity. Good students.

    Cons

    The primary con applies to all colleges and universities; Adjunct pay is barely adequate for the work put in and time spent. It is nearly impossible to make ends meet without a 2nd job. This is the expectation, but in this more rural location, there are few additional jobs available, so it is an unreasonable expectation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps more respect for adjunct faculty.

    Pros

    Great job on campus. You schedule around your time class and are not allowed to work during them so there is no way you have to worry about that sort of conflict. Experience gained on cash register, in selling tickets, working concessions stands and security. Got to go to all the games for free. You don't watch them all but you are there and have a chance.

    Cons

    Some employees sit around constantly. The "out door gear" looks great but its a simple light zip up and doesn't keep you very warm at 7pm January soccer games.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work, but when people don't show up or barely work, give them warnings. As well as maybe have a recommendation box.

    Pros

    The environment has this great growing, prospering, and expanding feel to it. Everybody is pretty friendly and helpful for the most part. I had many great opportunities there and it was a pretty positive experience.

    Cons

    Although the outside feel of everything is about expansion and progress, there were a few instances where expansion got in the way of details. A lot of things get left out when you're working on the bigger picture all the time.

    Pros

    It gave me information that is used in real life, the business department and faculty is great and help a lot.

    Cons

    I had to pay for the advice that I received at the University. It was a lot of Fun and games

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    organize better and they will have it. THey need to start gathering career information on their graduates. It would be very helpful
