Pros

You have opportunity to meet new students. There is flexible hours to choose from. Workload is not heavy. Mostly time, you have opportunity to work on your own personal stuff. The employers are friendly and helpful. Co-workers are nice and willing to help you. It is on campus so you don't have work outside. It is a great work study position to apply for.

Cons

There are night shifts. You may have to cover shift for others if they are unable to come due to illness or personal issues. You may have trouble with new technologies. It is a like a work and learn experience.

    Pros

    Wonderful training and development programs (if your supervisor and work schedule permit your attendance). There are lots of perks to working at a top-tier public University; access to great performances and speakers (free or low cost); wonderful libraries; tuition waivers for 2 classes per year; access to great exercise facilities. There tends to be a lot of flexibility on campus, which is great for work/life balance and the extended winter holiday break is a boon!

    Cons

    There is an obvious lack of management training, which can lead to very hit or miss experiences for employees. Communication from upper administration trickles down to employees at a pretty slow rate. If you're coming from the private sector, be prepared for lots of bureaucracy. Not many upwardly mobile career opportunities for younger employees. Salaries offered are often well below market rate (unless you work in a department with external funding). Benefits offerings are not at all competitive. The best and brightest employees often move on to better paying institutions as quickly as possible. State budget cuts often result in zero percent salary increases (nope, not even cost of living).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improved communication and competitive salaries would greatly help to improve employee morale.
