    I worked at Butler University part-time

    Pros

    Good position for a student, flexible hours, very understanding of a student's schedule.

    Pay student employees better

    I have been working at Butler University (More than a year)

    Pros

    People care about the mission, dedicated to university success. Education product is solid, if some sections a bit outdated. Plan for future is around updated facilities.

    Cons

    Awful business processes rooted in the 1970's. HR is a hot mess - no process, constant turnover. Leadership constantly says innovate but no one supports the innovation because the business is built for strictly maintenance. IT keeps trying to change things up but can't deliver anything but the basics.

    Advice to Management

    VPs do not inspire confidence - they do not communicate to staff, they do not collaborate - they are the only people with the "right answers" and they don't trust their staff to think, just execute the orders.

    I have been working at Butler University full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    MOST of the people are there for the students and work toward the common goal of a good student experience.

    Cons

    Communication campus wide is very weak. Staff are considered and generally treated with less respect (and pay) than faculty. Higher level management has no idea what goes on at the ground level to get things done.

    Advice to Management

    Walk a mile in my shoes.

    Pros

    Great people to work with - great students. Discounted or free classes.

    Cons

    Pay should be higher but there are other benefits to make up for it.

    Pros

    Great people and atmosphere! There was not a lot for me to do sometimes so I got paid to do homework as a student assistant.

    It was slow and I got bored.

    Pros

    Everyone in the office is really great to work with. They are really focused on your professional development and what the internship can do for you after you leave.

    Cons

    The only downside is that it doesn't pay very much, but that is due to budget since Internship and Career Services (ICS) is a small department.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing and a round of applause to you for making sure that I get what I need out of the internship.
