    Pros

    Queer-friendly
    Nice people
    Are likely to promote you if you stay determined and apply yourself with every opportunity given
    If you do things right, you can walk out of that university with two or three years of managerial experience and then go on to a professional job.

    Cons

    They will withhold a certain amount of your stipend from each bi-monthly payment and give it to you at the end of the academic year, if and only if, you fulfill your contractual obligations (which are more subjective than you might think). They are decidedly going to choose profit over your wellbeing.

    Terrible communication between departments, terrible communication intra-departmentally as well. Residence and Greek Life (RGL) is particularly bad at this. They still heavily favor their RAs over the Desk Managers even though Desk Managers have a greater impact on the university in both the immediate and long term.

    Advice to Management

    Don't manipulate your employees, especially not the ones who really desire to do their very best for the department. Respect your desk managers.
