    I have been working at Yale University part-time

    Pros

    great think tank in ISS to be a part of great scholars good benefits good pay set my own hours for most part

    Cons

    inconsistency of work hours sometimes profs not clear ahout assignent they want achieved timelines not always respected not cover commute costs

    Advice to Management

    I think that the management could operationalize a bit better; of course it isn't a for profit business and run by scholars so not what they are optimizing for, but still could


  3. Student Assistant

    Pros

    Excellent pay, generally caring people. Great pay for a student job that requires no experience, and just generally an excellent point on a resume.

    Cons

    Some individuals are very... quirky, and can be very hard to get along with. As a student, there isn't a way to get past this.
