    I have been working at Loyola University

    Pros

    Mentors were open to ideas and worked around your schedule. There were many opportunities to present your project and ideas to the public. There are also many resources available for funding.

    Cons

    The staff is small and so networking is harder here than in other academic institutions. Most professors are keen on getting their project done rather than your own. You must push your project for them to care.

    Great atmosphere and cooperative people,Salary and benefits is fine all in all.

    Pros

    My department had a great management. The people I worked with were very understanding and they were a down to earth staff.

    Cons

    The building we worked in was somewhat old. Sometimes there were issues with heating and cooling. Its hard to obtain parking downtown, so the commute is somewhat difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    I worked at Loyola University part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I really enjoyed how clean the office was that I worked in. I also enjoyed how short my work days were, this allowed me time to study for my classes. I was treated well and in a professional manner.

    Cons

    The only thing I disliked was the politics of the office. I would've liked equal treatment from everyone no matter what. I felt that new people do not get treated as well as veteran student workers and I think this is wrong and shouldn't be allowed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat all your student workers equally and try to make new workers feel as welcomed as possible! Instead of spending time talking to student workers that have been there, try to connect more with the new student workers!
