I have been working at University of Oregon part-time (less than an year)

Pros

The job is relatively simple, somewhat like call center work. It is also seasonal, so they usually hire on in the summer when things are really busy. Once you learn the ropes, the office is rather helpful in ensuring you've got your feet on the ground before you're entrusted with too much responsibility.

Cons

The pay is rather low, and often you are dealing with very angry, anxious and aggravated sorts of people. The key is to be patient, and hopefully this job is some sort of supplemental income to your student life.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management does a relatively good job of listening, so there isn't much to say here.

    Pros

    The department that I work in does a great job of being concerned about the employees. We genuinely feel that the department cares about employees

    Cons

    There is a lot of uncertainty from quarter to quarter about employment. However, that is mainly driven by status in the program.

    Pros

    There's a union, with so-so health benefits.
    The pay isn't horrible for grad students.

    Cons

    The top-to-bottom function of the University is a mess.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What are the goals? Try to come up with some coherent plan, besides simply existing.
