    Pros

    I had a student worker position while I attended one of the MnSCU universities. It was a great place to work to build your resume. The office I worked had a very welcoming atmosphere.

    Cons

    The working hours at the office I worked at was 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM so I didn't get to put as many hours as I wished.

    Pros

    Meaningful work -- opportunity to help students across the system/state. Office facilities are premium. Tremendous flexibility with tele-work and work schedule. Amazing health insurance.

    Cons

    Sexism is alive and well. Management is not transparent. Environment is highly political -- to some extent this is simply the fiscal reality, but it's difficult.

    Former Employee - MSUM Athletic Department Photographer in Moorhead, MN

    I worked at Minnesota State Universities System

    Pros

    Got to photograph all sporting events for MSUM. Fun to be right there in the action at football games, basketball games, etc.

    Cons

    Spent many hours editing and going through photos, and stayed at every sporting event the entire time. Skipped college classes to work on photos!

    Advice to Management

    Pay workers per hour instead of just $50 per game. I probably made a few cents per hour that I spent working on photos.

    Pros

    As a graduate teaching assistant, I share a large office with one other person, and teach one 4 credit hour class. Very little in the way of responsibilities for a free education.

    Cons

    Stipend is not enough to live off of.
