    Pros

    Smart people who are good at what they do. I worked as a temp for about 4 months and felt welcomed and valued. I was actually offered a full time position there but turned it down for a position at another University and regret it every day!

    Cons

    You definitely have to start at the bottom and work your way up. Very difficult to get in unless you know someone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!
