    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!

    Pros

    Great product/project management experience. You work with a lot of developers and product managers on projects. You sometimes even manage your own projects.

    Cons

    Sometimes you might be given busy work because you help the main product managers. But that work isn't bad at all though.

    Advice to Management

    N/A. They're amazing.

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

    Pros

    I absolutely loved this job! It is a great way to develop your skill set as an undergraduate and really delve into your interests. Professors are really good at mentoring you and giving you substantive work.

    Cons

    The hours are not always secure and that can be really stressful.

    I have been working at Brigham Young University (BYU) part-time

    Pros

    I'm sure this varies depending on what professor you work under, but generally hours are self managed.

    Cons

    Same cons as any typical part time job, low income, no paid time off, but I wouldn't expect anything different for this type of position

    Advice to Management

    A lot of the work is self guided and the research can be very open ended. Helping to define end goals and scope would be beneficial
