    I worked at Texas A&M AgriLife part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people were incredible to work with. As a student worker, they valued my schoolwork over anything and worked around my tests and project schedule to make sure school was my number one priority.

    Cons

    My skin is already dry, so working with all the paper just dried out my hands more!

    Management cares about their employees and their families. You are treated as a valuable asset and issues are addressed professionally and quickly. Management protects you from any conflicts with clients.

    Pros

    Friendly working environment, great peoples to work with, a wide range of interesting research subjects, ideal for students who want to bridge their academic training to the real world.

    Cons

    Being a state-funded agency, the research projects here are somewhat dependent on the political environment in the state.

    I have been working at Texas A&M AgriLife part-time

    Pros

    The people are great to work with, everyone is very friendly and willing to help. The hours are flexible, your hours are set for that semester at the beginning of the semester. They always work with you if you need time off. Great for students who want a job on campus that is willing to work around their school schedule.

    Cons

    Don't really have any. I really like most of the people and they are always willing to work with me. It does get rather busy sometimes, but if you are good at multi-tasking you will be fine.

    Pros

    Good way to get experience as a student instead of textbook learning
    Good way to network with professors
    Got the chance to work on multiple projects and experience many different aspects of my field

    Cons

    No room for growth, only a temporary position
    Low pay (close to minimum)
    Can be repetitive (but this is common in labs so get used to it)

    Advice to Management

    Keep in contact with student assistants in their employment, include them in lab meetings to make sure they know whats going on.
