Pros

Free housing (during the summer), flexible hours, laid back work environment, supportive management

Cons

The main downside of working for GW is the bureaucracy. As a student employee you at the very bottom of a long food chain. Little room to question irrational decisions feedback can get lost in the mess of hierarchy.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you're doing, but also remember that for students, academics come first.

    Pros

    The University is large and provides a lot of opportunity for growth once hired.

    Cons

    It's a large institution focused heavily on making money because it is a business. Don't let the not-for-profit status and educational mission make you think otherwise.
