    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.

    I have been working at University of North Carolina part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Your experience depends on the team of people you're working with, but I have been lucky. The PI I was working with gave me a great deal of atonomony and has a great team of motivated smart people working for her. I have had the opportunity to work on several of the PIs studies, and have learned so much about the world clinical/social research. Overall it's been a fantastic job.

    Cons

    People generally stay in the UNC system for too long, and become apathetic or negative. In reasearch there are lots of ebs and flows to the work, so there are periods where there is very little to do. There is also little room for growth unless you have a PhD.
