    I have been working at Binghamton University part-time

    Pros

    A well made position that serves as an interface between the IT department and the actual student population.
    The training program was very well made and very informative.

    Cons

    Compensation is minimum wage but otherwise a great place to work as a student as the time commitment is self managed and tapers off as the workload of the semester increases.
