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 Management

Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    The work isn't difficult and the expectations are not high

    Cons

    definitely underpaid as a result of years of wage freezes due to the state budget issues no accountability, some people are just warm bodies that fill positions not a lot of opportunity for advancement, you have to be in the right place at the right time to move forward in your career

    Set higher standards for your administrative employees and hold them accountable for the quality of their work

    Pros

    GMU is very flexible when it comes to scheduling, working around the student's availability presented by class load. Inside the IT department, all employees and management are friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    The ResTech job itself within the IT department was fairly easy and paid decently for a quarter-time (10 hr) student, but the job wasn't very technically interesting or challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Management does a great job at communicating with employees, planning events, and preparing employees for the job. No qualms with management.
