    Pros

    My work environment was wonderful! I had awesome and caring coworkers in addition to the higher ups. Being a small school, there were tons of opportunities to make a difference/improve the system; I wasn't just a cog in the wheel.

    Cons

    While not applicable to me, I heard that the salary levels at Oxy are typically lower than other similar schools.

    Pros

    Staff and faculty are supportive and accommodating. Work environment is generally relaxed and the work is not too labor intensive. One of the best work-study options on campus.

    Cons

    Grading lab reports can be tedious and time-consuming, but on the upside you won't have to do it too often if you alternate with the other TAs.

    Pros

    Great work environment with friendly staff and administration. The students on campus are also very easy going and look to strike up conversation whenever possible.

    Cons

    The school operates in a bubble that is Eagle Rock, Los Angeles, don't let that keep you from exploring all the great things about the surrounding neighborhoods like Highland Park.

    Pros

    Great opportunities to take charge. Excellent work environment - very nice and friendly people. Potlucks, holiday lunches/breakfasts occasionally. You get paid for the work you put in and very understanding if you needed time off. Lastly, ample training involved so you never felt you were thrown into the deep end without guidance.

    Cons

    Really no negatives at this job in terms of work environment or company values. They definitely appreciate their employees and everyone is very nice.
