Pros

Great way to earn an extra income as a student, with rock solid pay for a part-time job. Easy access to reference letters, and a good way to network as a bonus. I'd venture to say that this is the best work-study position available at UBC.

Cons

No cons really; my own writing improved as a consequence of working here and getting trained by the centre. Yeah, I really can't think of a single con.

Advice to Management

Keep up the great work! The people at the centre are awesome!

    Pros

    Great training, can feel like family if opportunities to bond are adequate. Lots of programs happening all the time.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy, takes forever to get something processed/approved, training can be insufficient and work can suck the passion out of you if you are working in a department that's underfunded or low profile.

    Advice to Management

    Don't always do things a certain way just because you've always done it that way. Be willing to experiment because the new generation will push for it.

    Pros

    Beautiful campus life, a city in itself!

    Cons

    Becoming more and more like private sector sweat shop, but without any of the perks like nice office space and bonuses!

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within!
