    Pros

    Great benefits and health care for the area. My supervisor was very supportive of me having a family. Clear structure within organization

    Cons

    Can at times be too bureaucratic and that can be limiting, especially for moving up within the organization. Things can also not be communicated as a result.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on being supportive of those with families. Good job with organization.

    Pros

    Best paid job on campus, and it was pretty relaxed. It was a good way to meet people

    Cons

    I had to wake up at 7:45 am, and the tone of the drill varied depending on which professor I worked for.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that you are professional, or they will fire you. It's a coveted job, and there are subs who would jump to take your place.
