    I have been working at Catholic University (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Opportunity to learn interact on the job. I work with Tech. experts so the environment can get really serious quickly. There are some busy days which I like as the day not only goes faster but there is the opportunity to exercise my brain power/sharpening my multitastking skills

    Cons

    I found this job through a temp agency and as such my pay is seriously reduced/eaten into by the agency; that in itself can be very discouraging on all levels. When I got the job I was informed it was an administrative position but my job involves some finance, working with budget books, reviewing accounts. There is really not much admin involved- hence why I termed position Finance Coordinator or Administrative Coordinator II/III (I dont know)

    I worked at Catholic University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very laid back, students are engaged and it is fun to work with them. Most of the new labs are very well written and the lab periods go smoothly.

    Cons

    Some of the lab equipment is very old and there is not enough of it, and the labs are very small. Hopefully Mahoney Hall can be fixed up for Chemistry again someday.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep rewriting the labs and keeping everything organized. It helps the labs, students and TAs work very well together.
