    Pros

    The people at the University of Idaho are very nice and they try to be helpful. Additionally, the work environment is clean and the campus is comfortable.

    Cons

    The incompetency of the people who work here is sometimes astonishing. Not to mention that the location of the school in Idaho is hard to bare.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise management to be more on point when it comes to their students and employees. Most of the time one hand does not know what the other is doing.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities here for graduate teaching assistants; good professional development activities for grad students. Very welcoming community of people. Moscow is a great city. I made lifelong friends and really spread my wings here.

    Cons

    Having so many bosses and supervisors to report to if assigned to multiple tasks. The sun never comes out between November and April. The health insurance sucks.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the positive, challenging, enriching academic environment. Very grateful for the opportunities I was given at UI as they have led directly to great things for me professionally. UI was a great place for me to cut my teeth as a scholar and teacher.

    Pros

    - Compassionate, engaged management in the Writing Center - Great experience for both tutors and students - Professional, respectable environment - Tutors genuinely care about the success of their students

    Cons

    - Needs to be better funded by the university

    Advice to Management

    To those directly managing the Writing Center, keep up the great work! To those who allocate funds to the Writing Center, you need to realize what a gem of a resource you really have and give them their own (significantly larger) budget.
