    Cons

    The hierarchy between staff and faculty or rather by education is often noticeable and the pay is not always competitive.

    Student Worker

    I worked at Emory University part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Overall this was a very nice place to work. To list a few pros:
    -Friendly workplace
    -Flexible Scheduling
    -Lots of opportunity for professional development

    Cons

    Again, overall this was a very nice place to work. The only real problems I had were technilogical in nature (e.g. access card not working, computer access faulty, etc), which were eventually resolved, though not as quickly as one would hope.
