I worked at Boston University part-time (less than a year)

Pros

Was able to practice typing skills and paying attention to detail. Could listen to music. Organizing materials enabled you to see how creative you can get with the files. Everyone was working, no one was working more than another.

Cons

Minimal talking, very quiet work environment. Computers were old. Do not expect to make friends within the office since there is limited communication.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Upgrade the computers for all your departments.
