    Pros

    On campus, understands student schedules and workloads, provides "homework jobs"

    Work/Life balance was great. If you like to speak with different college students on a daily basis, this is a perfect job for you. Everyone in the office/team was more like family instead of colleagues.

    The University of Missouri - Columbia is a great place to work. It is one of the main employers in Columbia, MO. They offer flexible schedules, great vacation and sick time, and retirement benefits.

    Cons

    The pay is not the best however the culture is great. They should focus more on personal growth, offer jobs where employees can move up instead of reaching a dead end.

    Pros

    I have loved having the opportunity to work on real world projects and problems. It has been incredibly educational and I have grown a lot as a person because of it.

    Cons

    I think one of the cons is that your educational and work experience is dependent on the faculty that teach or employ you. I believe that this can either make for a great or horrible experience depending on the faculty member.
