    Pros

    - Fulfilling
    - On campus
    - Make your own hours
    - Good pay
    - Great co-workers

    The research can be extremely rewarding and state-of-the-art, but also stressful. The logistics of the job were very ideal. Do research when your schedule permits and report progress weekly. Pay was good. Co-workers were amazing; I loved being surrounded by motivated, high-achieving, and intelligent people. The atmosphere was friendly and focused on the science.

    Cons

    - Balancing school/work

    I found it difficult to manage a 15-credit semester and do research at the same time. My studies suffered as the research work became demanding.

    You can study while you work. The hours work around your class hours. The management is very fun.

    Sometimes there can be cattiness between employees. The upper management only looks our for themselves.

    Listen to your employees! We are students and we have concerns!

    Pros

    Unlimited flexibility with schedules since most employees are students. May spend free time doing one's own hw. Interesting people and stimulating work.

    Cons

    Management outside lab may favor politics over education. Math department is weak and doesn't even have a building. Little graduate and career support.

    Advice to Management

    Prioritize math and sciences in general ed. Require higher grades to advance in classes. Too many students struggle because they only do the minimum.

    Pros

    I worked in SEB which is the most expensive building built by the state so the facilities were great. Awesome Gym and my peers were world class all with advanced degrees from all over the world. Work schedule and material was great - I was able to choose my hours and much of the tasks I worked on. Great Work-Life Balance!

    Cons

    Summer Heat is intense, not much in the way of upper mobility or cross mobility.

    Advice to Management

    Retire!
