    Pros

    As a student worker there is a lot of free time to do hw! Bosses are so friendly and understanding. It's a nice way to get money and experience while also treating it as a study hall.

    Cons

    There isn't much to do. You're only there to answer phone calls and assist students who come into the office which rarely happens. Sometimes your boss will give you something to do if you tell them you're bored.

    Advice to Management

    Challenge the students and give them more to do.

    Pros

    Friendly environment and leadership that is flexible and understanding of personal issues. Benefits are good and the 'free' vacation time for holidays is a huge plus.

    Cons

    Lack of advancement opportunities unless you move between departments/divisions. Opportunity for raises are almost non-existent since it is a public university. A lot of decisions are wrapped in red tape - don't expect anything to happen quickly.
