    Pros

    Great resources and staff to help student researchers. Professors are always extremely willing to aid in research process in any way possible.

    Cons

    There are not many cons that come to mind, but I do wish there were more business school students conducting research, as there are only a handful doing so and thus there is little interaction with other students over the summer.

    I have been working at University of Richmond part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The location of the University is ideal, outside of inner city Richmond but close enough to utilize the resources of the city. I was compensated extremely well for my work and the culture is great.

    Cons

    I often found the most difficult things were the tasks that I was asked to complete. Some of the instructions were extremely vague or not correct at all and I often found myself on my own trying to complete a project.

    Advice to Management

    Be more clear about exactly it is you want done and how you want it to be done.

    Pros

    Friendly co workers and management. The students you serve are super polite and friendly. Base pay is fairly competitive. Easy job with a free lunch everyday

    Cons

    Part-time hours with no benefits. There just aren't many cons that I can possibly think of. You might feel bad throwing away some good loaves of bread every Friday.
