    Policies not consistently enforced throughout university. Business Process Improvement initiative is centralizing units and making people nervous about their jobs.

    Pros

    Great manager, relaxed atmosphere, Great for students wanting to have time to study as well. Manager really cares about well being of employees.

    Cons

    You are under Emory University and are just a student worker, so that can be limiting in terms of how much input you get to have in terms of decision making etc.

    Pros

    Standard benefits, but not very innovative working conditions. Very "stick by the book" when it comes to clerical level workers. Must clock in and out daily on telephone at desk.
    Career opportunities are limited with out a Ph.D.

    Cons

    Most people are friendly and helpful.
