    Pros

    on-campus work; i can literally walk from my class to my job
    very relaxed atmosphere in my area of the office, people are polite and helpful

    Cons

    no discounts, etc. on clothes or anything because it's filing, answering phones, etc.
    might not get full part time hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    being more stable as far as budget cuts would be nice, as a student worker it's tough if it's your only job

    Pros

    Fair salary and adequate work environment. Job stability for those willing to compromise educational quality and professional standards. Friendly people, diverse student population.

    Cons

    General lack of leadership and complete disconnect between departments. Poor communication on all levels which complicates processes and creates confusion. Decisions makers do not value input from faculty/staff/students. Many policies and schedules are based on the best interests of administration and select faculty rather than the students and community they serve. It's all about who you know and align yourself with, not what you know or what skills you have to offer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase professional development to mid-level management. Improve communications on all levels. Develop a more student-focused paradigm.
