    I have been working at University of Georgia as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    If you are a student worker, you can really find some really great experiences on campus. During my four years at UGA, i worked as a student worker for UGA Food Services, student assistant for UGA Public Affairs office, student accountant for UGA Auxiliary Services, and a student web developer for UGA Finance and Administration. The hours are flexible and people are very nice. You get some really great experiences for your resume and just meeting awesome people.

    Cons

    Not much. I guess pay can be limited as you would expect from an government institution.

    Pros

    Get to work with students and help them succeed, staff are great people and helpful when you need them

    Scheduling issues, frequently a student-athlete would be a no show (you get paid for half an hour), or they cancel and you don't receive appropriate notice

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing, Academic staff cares about their students and works hard to support them
