    Pros

    You cannot get better benefits than the U offers. Even minimum wage employees are covered under the union, and they have a great contract. Benefits outweighs any cons IMO.

    Cons

    If you have an issue, it's often very difficult to figure out who needs to be informed. The university is basically a mini city, and paperwork moves slowly.

    Pros

    Excellent pay. Great work environment. Surrounded by great people who are understanding of the student life and willing to work with your schedule.

    I can not think of any off the top of my head. This was an all around great experience for me.

    None.

    Pros

    On average, kept hours at about 20
    Professor was very helpful
    Didn't have to create discussion outlines from scratch
    Students were generally interested, bright and engaged

    Cons

    Hours can be very early
    Not all of it's very fun, grading is of course very repetitive
    Of course, some discussion sections are more well behaved than others

    Pros

    Freedom to structure the course the way I liked it

    Cons

    Nothing major. A central database that has all the information for new faculty would be helpful.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    Pros

    Great job for students, flexible hours, great co workers, and awesome experience. Got tons of hands on hardware experience as well as software configuration experience. Lastly gain some customer service skills while support university employees.

    Cons

    The pay is not great, but not horrible either. A little bit over minimum wage. For a job that requires a decent skill set, it would be nice if you received better compensation. In the end it is a student job so cant knock them too hard for this. Also wish the full time staff would work more with the students to show them more of the advanced software tools to help increase our experience.

    Advice to Management

    You're doing very well; treat students with respect as equals compared to other employees.
