    I worked at North Carolina State University part-time

    Pros

    Decent work experience, slightly above average pay, great accommodation for class schedule

    Cons

    Management does not listen to student employees even if they've been there for several semesters and have a history of commendation. Superiors will lie about policy whenever they mess up; ZERO accountability. Higher management is extremely out of touch with daily operations and only sees dollar signs. No incentive to work hard.

    Advice to Management

    Attempt to care about employees, especially those who are genuinely trying to smooth operations and help YOU save money. Accept that you make mistakes instead of trying to blame it on someone else.
