    I have been working at Space Dynamics Laboratory part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The work is great. For students, they work really well with your schedule. In fact, you set your own schedule and they're really flexible with time off. Pay is also really good, especially for a student position. Management and coworkers are friendly and fun to work with. They work with you to help you be working on things that interest you and advance your knowledge.

    Cons

    Can take a while to pick up on some of the practices. Many practices and procedures can be poorly defined, leading to confusion.

    Pros

    They very willing to work around the students schedule. They let me choose the times I will be able to come in based on my class schedule at the time.

    Cons

    Sometimes the work brought in makes it to where I have to stay in finishing projects later than I was planning on leaving. Also sometimes they throw the blame onto the student if something goes wrong.

    I have been working at Space Dynamics Laboratory

    Pros

    As a student working here, you get a lot of opportunities to start your career or to build a launching pad to go into something else. There is a wealth of knowledge among the people you are working around. Great pay and very flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    No benefits for students, but that is to be expected. Also, as a student, I often feel out of the loop on lots of things going on with the project/rest of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Interact more one-on-one with your part-time students. They are a great asset to the company and present a chance for you to influence the future of the industry.
