    I worked at Brigham Young University (BYU) part-time

    Pros

    BYU IAS has several highly experienced managers. Each has a slightly different working style, but they are all great mentors. During my time at IAS, I had the opportunity to work with all of them and I feel like I learned a lot.

    Cons

    I don't really have any cons. It is work, and work is sometimes boring. That is not unique to IAS.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the hard work. Transitions are always tough, but often necessary. I think the current management has a tough job to do, but is doing a great job helping the department and the university move forward.
