    Pros

    Able to schedule around classes, decent pay considering the level of work, awesome people to work with (if they know what they're doing), different stuff to do almost each shift.

    Cons

    Once you're scheduled for the semester, it's difficult to adjust the schedule, so plan ahead. You can get people to cover your shift if you're lucky, but overall you'll have a rough time. The politics in the workplace between different positions can grow tense as the semesters go on. Lack of specific training before being put on the job means you'll be learning as you're serving food.

    Advice to Management

    Do more intense training for new employees so that they have a better idea of what they're to do once they're on the job.

    Pros

    Excellent team work from all associates and co-workers. Laid back environment but hypes up for the tours and seasonal events. Happy people and helpful to train. An adult environment.

    Cons

    Uhm, I guess if you aren't an extrovert you wouldn't like it. But extroverts don't apply, so it works great. I didn't have any cons.

    Advice to Management

    Be sure staff doesn't discuss people in their lunch room. It isn't a sound proof room.

    Pros

    Great organization. Academic setting fostered diversity and exploration. If you are liked and have a good manager very good opportunities to learn new skills and work of different projects

    Cons

    Low salary, cronyism, seems like some departments are more prone to spinning their wheels a lot. It may be because Of academic environment and no pressure to make a profit
