Pros

Good side benefits for student employees - priority registration is very useful. Decent compensation. Mostly functional leadership. Lots of good people.

Cons

The parking situation is lousy, regardless of your level of employment. Hours limits for students. Sometimes the amount of bureaucracy can be annoying.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to streamline your decision-making process for increased efficiency. Open your ears to suggestions from employees and other levels of management.
