    Pros

    Very flexible work hours for students. Personable management who works with you to find out how to fit work in with your life.

    I worked at Michigan Technological University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible Hours, beautiful location during the summer, good immediate leadership, project freedom once a project is given.

    Cons

    Higher leadership can be inconsistent. Tendency for nothing to get done in an immediate fashion when necessary. Location is terrible during the winter, mostly due to inconsistent campus snow removal.
