    I worked at East Carolina University part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good pay, flexible hours, no take home work, opportunities to work with both students and higher level personnel. Interview process was short and to the point.

    Cons

    Little interaction between co workers outside of work, very cliquey, not the most exciting job in the world. Pay could be increased, but still competitive.

    Pros

    Stability. Career branding created some mobility.

    Cons

    SPA employees have stability, but are unable to get raises based on merit. Laziness gets rewarded as often as hard work, so can become demoralizing after a while. SPA employees forced into pension with no match.

    I worked at East Carolina University part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The university, and specifically the office I worked for, felt like a family. My supervisors and coworkers gave me autonomy with most of my tasks, but they also were supportive and willing to assist me whenever I needed them. Additionally, I was challenged and able to experience various aspects of university operations and to interact with individuals from various departments.

    Cons

    Occasionally, there were communication issues among departments or between employees that created some unnecessary headaches/problems.

    Pros

    Job provides some flexibility in scheduling to accommodate student's schedules. Decent experience and average pay for the position and responsibilities.

    Cons

    The university administrator system is bloated and clumsy. Too many politics. Not enough funding where it counts. The quality of people in management varies but that is typical for any job. The administration moves slowly so it can be difficult to plan ahead at the beginning of each semester.
