    Pros

    Very flexible & understanding. This was a great experience to learn about the sports industry.

    Cons

    Lots of hours for little benefit. I would put in about 40 hours of work for little pay. There was also no time to study or actually work on school work.

    Advice to Management

    Have some sort of review system. They said goodbye and that was the last I heard of them. No formal review or anything like that.

    At times we may be asked to work on weekends or when higher officials visit labs which was tough to manage while doing your graduate studies.
