I worked at Virginia Tech part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The administration in general is very welcoming and nice. Student workers are given a good amount of responsibility and are treated with respect. Supervisors understand that this is temporary work and are not too hard on you. Depending on your position, schedules can be flexible and accommodate your class schedule.

Cons

Lots of overlap of responsibilities among offices, resulting sometimes in miscommunication. Inter-dependencies of several departments compete with staff incentives to solve problems internally. Some staff have been there a long time and are generally pretty complacent.

Advice to Management

Evaluate offices and make sure staff is held accountable for their responsibilities.
