"Excellent place for student workers"

Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Great pay and interesting work. The university makes it easy to find jobs that are available to the community and facilitates the application process.

Cons

None that I can think of. Jobs at the university are near where students live and are high paying (or at least enough so given the student contribution) compared to their equivalents outside the university.
