    Pros

    An up and coming school that will be recognized soon. It will soon be a competitor to other engineering schools.

    Cons

    Some of the faculty and staff don't always agree with methods of higher education. This causes a decrease in moral for the community.

    Advice to Management

    Have more guidelines for tutors at GSU. There were no rules to follow only do what you thought was best.

    I worked at Georgia Southern University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The student athletes are FANTASTIC to work with and always have a great attitude. The students have a desire to succeed and treat the tutors with a great amount of respect, not seen by many general students.

    Cons

    The times available to tutor can be challenging to work around a school schedule. They will try to be flexible, but often times certain times of the day are slow because of athletic practices, classes, etc. Also, it is challenging to get a lot of hours in each week, so reliable hours are not possible week in and week out. Sometimes, students will not show for their appointment and that is a loss of planned working hours.

    Advice to Management

    Create a strategy that does not undercut the student workers when athletes do not show up to their tutoring. Also, provide more feedback for tutors, such as observations. These changes were in the process of happening when I was leaving, but I am unsure if they were ever implemented.

    Pros

    My colleagues were very helpful showing me the day to day processes of our department. Departments we service have nice respectful older staff.

    Cons

    BFIT did not have much access to the network and limited access to almost everything. There are so many departments of IT, it causes a slow turn around time for any fixes or modifications need.

    Advice to Management

    All departments of IT Networking etc. should work closer together on a first name basis.
