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

    Pros

    Even in part-time work, BYU entities really care about their employees. I was an RA and absolutely loved it.

    Cons

    Once I was teachable, there weren't really any. If you're an RA, just be prepared to work really hard during finals week. In addition to being necessary, it helped me not stress school too much, which I see as a net benefit.

    Advice to Management

    Hire supervisors that will trust your employees; it's the best way to get them to mature. My supervisor trusted us deeply, and I still think back on the lessons I learned from him. Our coworking group wasn't so fortunate; their supervisor always expected them to act like children and chided them with passive-aggressive remarks. I was not envious in the least.
