    Pros

    Students are passionate. Academic environment and student culture are intellectually engaging. Some staff are passionate and fantastic. Good transit benefits.

    Cons

    Pay that is not competitive with the rest of the Bay Area. Long hours without appreciation of work nor of the desire to have a life outside of work. Inflexibility in working hours. Students who can make or break your career based upon whether they like you. Directive department heads who are unwilling to hear feedback. No tuition benefits. Claim to be innovative, but as a staff member you see that nearly everything is antiquated and people don't want to change from "it's always been done that way."

    Pros

    Relaxed job with task that are very easily accomplishable. You will be able to do homework on the job if nothing else is going on.

    Cons

    As college students we are being gouged for money by the university in terms of tuition. The least they could do is pay a better wage. It starts at 9.50 an hour; you will be paid 10:00 after 4 hours of work after 5pm.
