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

    Pros

    Great co-workers. A work environment that fosters career and personal growth. I enjoy all the things that I'm learning, and all the ways I can help. Great 401k benefit even though I'm only 3/4 time.

    Cons

    Current job is only 3/4 time. I would totally work full time if it was offered.

    I have been working at Brigham Young University (BYU) full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent colleagues, wonderful students, beautiful location near the mountains with a lot or great outdoor activities, stable secure funding with support from the LDS church, beautiful campus, great library, effective IT infrastructure, campus leadership squarely focussed on stated aims of the University.

    Cons

    Top-down management management sometimes misses opportunities taking advantage of the wisdom of the faculty as a group.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your sights on our core mission.

    As a TA you will get paid to do your HW during class, at lest with the geology department you will.

    You will have to run the drop in labs well into the evening multiple times a week.

    Keep up the good work.

    I have been working at Brigham Young University (BYU) part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    BYU is willing to work with your class schedule and help you to succeed in any position, they reward longevity. Great to work with students and faculty alike who share relatively the same values and standards that you do.

    Cons

    Won't allow you to go over 20 hours a week if you're a student, unless you work over the summer. Longevity is preferred, and may hurt you financially (ie - you don't get your 6 month raise if you're planning on leaving after seven months of working there).

    Advice to Management

    Reward the student who is doing well/better than others, even if they haven't worked there as long as others may have. It's unfair to give students who do twice as much work the same pay raise as those who hardly do anything.
