    Pros

    Somewhat laid back, they will work with your class schedule to get you what hours you want. Good IT support experience. Can learn a lot about software, hardware and audiovisual support here.

    Cons

    As a student worker, you are limited to a maximum of 20 hours during the semester. Also, the student position got paid very little but I believe that is changing.

    Pros

    Loved the environment, my co-workers, the faculty and students. Great challenges, supportive colleagues, never a dull day!

    Cons

    As staff (not faculty), I felt that there was little room for career advancement without completely changing departments and job areas. In 5 1/2 years my salary increases were mostly from legislative action and when those stopped due to the recession, I saw this as a dead-end job.

    Advice to Management

    More professional development for staff. The University does a much better job in supporting and encouraging the careers of its faculty than it does for SPA staff.
