    I worked at Iowa State University part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great way to make new friends, Most of the management team are students as well, Good pay, they work with your class schedule and during finals you can switch shifts easily. For every year you work for them you get a pay raise. If you work for ISU dinning you get a free or discounted meal after your shift

    Cons

    Some of the full time - non student staff members can be unpleasant/rude towards student employees but this is normally one or two out of 15 some staff members so its not a huge issue

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work! Great working for you while I was a student at ISU!

    I have been working at Iowa State University full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Diverse set of faculty to work with, which makes finding a project you are interested in much easier. The majority of faculty I spoke to were very nice and willing to help with any questions I had. Lots of opportunity to teach as a TA if interested.

    Cons

    The city is smaller and doesn't always have a lot of options for activities do to outside of school, and is an hour drive to get to Des Moines. Also, you don't always get placed as an instructor for a class you have ever taken, which can make teaching difficult the first time around.
