    Pros

    Lots of great responsibilities and absolutely phenomenal employers who legitimately care. You are constantly reminded that you and your position are important to the well-being of the university.

    Cons

    The pay for being a resident assistant was absolutely abysmal and was not at all appropriate for the amount of work that was put in, nor was it appropriate considering how much other student workers who do significantly less make.

    Pros

    Awesome work environment, great interaction with people. Very relational along with some behind the scenes recruitment. The people you work with are great and very supportive. Honestly some of the most kind people you will ever work for and very good at invsting in you as a person.

    Cons

    Have to be willing to do the behind the scenes work that most people don't want to do. Sometimes management can be a little passive aggressive and not as assertive as somebody with my personality would like them to be.

    Advice to Management

    Middle managers should be more assertive with student employees when it comes to issues with attitude or how things are done. Confront the issue when they happen.

    Pros

    Positive work environment that provides you with great experience.

    Cons

    Undervalued, poor leadership in areas (not all departments), very difficult to succeed if you are not connected.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to advance, there is no benefit in complacency. Listen to ideas from everyone, not just those in your immediate surroundings. Focus on more than just your team. A monthly staff meeting with everyone would be great.

    Pros

    Starting position material, great place to start.

    Cons

    Hard to get a position within the university without very strong connections and higher vacancies are a rarity because they are handed out in the form of promotions.


  10. A caring and friendly environment, but little room for advancement without connections.
