I have been working at Boston University part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Many opportunities to work with professors and interact with staff members over the course of my job. Down time to study when work load is not significant.

Cons

Not that many cons, except the construction in the SMG building has made everything different and more difficult to adjust to. More pros than cons definitely.

    I worked at Boston University part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Was able to practice typing skills and paying attention to detail. Could listen to music. Organizing materials enabled you to see how creative you can get with the files. Everyone was working, no one was working more than another.

    Cons

    Minimal talking, very quiet work environment. Computers were old. Do not expect to make friends within the office since there is limited communication.

    Advice to Management

    Upgrade the computers for all your departments.
