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

    Pros

    Easy to fit around studies, very good fun as well as being useful for developing a number of key skills in event management and communication. So enjoyable it hardly feels like work.

    Cons

    Prior to some of the larger events they require you to attend "training" sessions - often unpaid - which are usually just the event organiser showing a powerpoint which could have easily been e-mailed to the student ambassadors. They waste time and are of little use.
