    I worked at Brigham Young University (BYU) part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I was a teaching assistant in a programming lab teaching students the principles of mathematical programming in Python. My hours were extremely flexible and I had great support from the math department faculty and staff.

    Cons

    The curriculum I was teaching is still under development so the constant changes made things a bit hectic at times.

    I have been working at Brigham Young University (BYU) part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The biggest pro of working here is that I love my boss. He has become a mentor to me because he truly cares about his employees.

    Cons

    There isn't much of a con here except that the pay isn't as great as it could be, but for a college job, it is pretty good.

    Pros

    Get great experience working with real companies.

    Step above a BYU OCI.

    Cons

    Need to be flexible because the work times are not set in stone. You work on projects that you have to schedule out with your team. It isn't consistent from project to project. This can also be a pro.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    I worked at Brigham Young University (BYU) part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    BYU provides an excellent opportunity to student web developers through the Center for Teaching and Learning. Students gain real world experience working on Learning Suite, a web application used by all BYU students and faculty.

    Cons

    No specific parking for student employees. The culture is centered on Mormon beliefs and values, meaning sometimes diversity of opinion or background is not as valued as it should be.
