    I worked at University of North Carolina

    Pros

    There were plenty of slow days that allowed for studying

    Cons

    Change in management, big presentation set ups without help, working until 3 am when only 1 or 2 people enter the building

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Logs are pointless, the building doesn't need to be open past midnight,
