    An organization more than a company

    Facilities Staff (Former Employee) College Station, TX

    ProsYour peers are fellow students who become some of your best friends. You work day in and day out with each other and really get to know each other and best close, the best time to work is over the summer when the employee staff is smaller so that you get to know each other a lot faster and its easier to get promoted.

    ConsThe promotion process is a little political and you kind of have to suck up to get promoted. The pay is not very well either, but it is a part time college job so you go into it knowing you won't get paid a lot.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTo pick less favorites and have people be promoted on merit and not based on favoritism, or nepotism.
