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

    Pros

    the ability to be flexible with time

    low paying job, rely too much on student workers for running university

    Advice to Management

    Employment in an academic setting is inherently bureaucratic. Steps could be taken within the university to reduce the bureaucracy.
