Pros

Worked on a term contract with the University Library. There is a strong body of leadership, an openess to trying new things, and a desire for even their short-term employees to grow on the job.

Cons

Cultural interta. There is some difficulty to having the org adapt to new technology. Still uses Libguides, for example. This is the only example I can thing of, and in no way should be a make-or-break thing. I had a fantastic time working for them.

Advice to Management

Stay the course, but beware the looming fiscal crisis.

    Pros

    Flexible hours and working from home possible. Working under a very good supervisor who is very open to ideas and enthusiastic about outcomes. I'm being paid to further my education and work on topics that I'm very interested in, I am definitely lucky. The entire mechanical engineering department is very helpful and open, if I have questions the faculty is always helpful and willing to share their knowledge.

    Cons

    Shared basement office, outdated lab equipment, limited summer TA opportunities.

    Pros

    Nice place to work - supervisors are easy to get along with and provide helpful insight regarding all job related questions. I considered myself a strong writer before I obtained this position but learned a lot on the job. Great way to interact with and assist other students.

    Cons

    Not allowed to be on a laptop while on duty - even if there are no students in the center. Makes it difficult to make the time go by as shifts are usually 3 times a week for 3 hours.
