    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.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, a lot of independence on the job

    Cons

    The team is all students, so you don't get the benefits of learning from people with a lot more experience. A great first job in the field

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

    Pros

    The team I worked with was awesome. My boss is one of the best guys I've ever worked with. The environment was great, and even though I was a student employee I was given a voice and a real chance to contribute to the projects I worked on.

    Cons

    There seemed to be a lot of bureaucracy and red tape that made working on certain projects difficult. The organizations and people requesting projects from us often were not clear with their requests and would change things on a whim, even if it wasn't in their best interest to do so.

    Advice to Management

    In a lot of ways, I think the problems with management are undergoing improvement currently. Having a project changed or dropped with little notice isn't great for morale.
