Pros

If you're a student there are ample opportunities to find fairly well paying jobs with an incredible amount of flexibility.

Cons

Advice to Management

More resources to actual full-time employees. Also give more ways to subsidize pay for students. Many offices won't hire students unless they are Work Study

    Don't go too far trying to standardize processes to save money. Sometimes the restrictions seem very inefficient.
