    I have been working at Saint Louis University as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    As a student the flexible hours were a plus!!

    Cons

    Lots of egos and daily interaction with passive aggressive people. Yes, people are nice, but it isn't a genuine nice. There's zero empowerment, every little decision has to be sent through the chain of command for approval.

    Pros

    I was a student research assistant, and it was great that I could earn some money at a job that was so close and that had such flexibility in terms of hours.

    Cons

    There really were no cons...it was only $10/hr., but I did not really expect much more.
