    I worked at Northern Michigan University as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    I was able to try my hand and be mostly autonomous in many different aspects of the communications and marketing including video production, official writing, event planning and management and many other communications-related tasks. The hours are very flexible, if you have to place more focus on class or life the staff are very happy to help.

    Cons

    The higher education industry is hard to innovate in, so the only thing I can say is the work doesn't have much room for change, but there is a lot to learn!

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

    Pros

    - Supervisors were very warm and supportive, which created great culture. - This was a work study position, so they offered flexible scheduling to work around my classes. - Great opportunity to learn general office skills. - This position only hired individuals in the department, so it was a great opportunity to build relationships with department faculty. - Convenient location.

    Cons

    - Seasonal position, hours only available during school year. - Since this was funded by the work study program wage rate was not as competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. :)

    I worked at Northern Michigan University part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Their Work Study program keeps you at the top of the pile as far as employment opportunities. Working there as an employee gives you access to the top of the ladder in your department.

    Cons

    Student part-time workers (particularly in the Work Study program) are not part of the direct ladder to the top. Hours are minimal, and no one going to school full-time can have a full-time job on top of it. There's a lot of other Work Study employees.

    Advice to Management

    Like any company, they enjoy a hard worker that can find the silver lining in their jobs. They are always looking for ideas to help streamline service and improve employee/customer relationships.

    Pros

    It's great working at NMU because you can go to work in-between classes and make your own schedule. I've worked two jobs on campus and both of my bosses have been more than willing to work around my class schedule.

    Cons

    The downside of working at NMU is that most on-campus jobs do not provide any opportunity for advancement. It is rare that you will ever make above minimum wage while working an on-campus job.
