    I worked at Rutgers University part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good way for students to get to know teachers better outside the classroom. This really helps if you need a recommendation for graduate school or a job.

    Good insight into the workings of higher education for those who are interested in pursuing a career in university teaching/administration.

    Cons

    I was by far the most organized person there. A lot of my work involved wading through the layers of bureaucracy just to get simple things done, like copies of class materials.

    I think that people's experience depends on the professor they are working for. In my case the prof. was a great guy and easy to work for, but in interacting with the other people in administration I found that there is a frustrating amount waste. While there are some very helpful and nice people working at Rutgers, I thought that far too many were lazy, and they often acted like they were doing me a favor by simply doing their jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the dead wood employees. There are too many people who do nothing, and their lazy attitude drags down the level of the university. Find ways to reward hard workers that actually deliver, and reevaluate the performance of staff on all levels in administration.
