    Pros

    Office culture, passion for what we do

    Cons

    The University needs to give more funding to student life, especially recreational sports! We have some of the best varsity athletic facilities in the country but our general student facilities are way outdated. There has been a push to improve them but more should be done.

    I worked at University of Michigan

    Pros

    Relaxed environment and friendly staff! Everyone knows you are a student and have to commit to classes and studying first. Flexible hours too.

    Cons

    Pay won't be extremely high and a lot of times there won't be as much work given to you. You can get bored easily if you don't proactively look for more work.

    Pros

    Decent benefits. They pay tuition reimbursement. For the most part, left alone most of the shift to do your job.

    Cons

    Top heavy management with upper management lacking morals and ethics. Pay raises suck. Union only cares about itself.

    Neutral Outlook
