I worked at George Mason University part-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

The Collaborative Learning Hub is a great opportunity to build a lot of different skills while you're going through school. You'll become proficient ins software that is typically used throughout the working world. You'll build a lot of skills and learn a lot about working with a variety of different people.

Cons

The pay isn't extremely high for the area. Occasionally office politics show up, but rarely change the day-to-day operation of the lab.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing what you're doing.
