    I worked at University of Florida part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    They were wonderful in helping to work around my class schedule. Office culture was upbeat and supportive even during the busier times of the year. Great for building responsibility for being in the work force.

    Cons

    There wasn't a lot of OPS money given for student positions so at times it was difficult working around the OPS funding or having my wages count as a form of financial aid.
