    I worked at Texas Tech University part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Wonderful work-life balance, very flexible hours with school schedule, and lots of opportunity to learn.

    Cons

    Didn't do the job I was hired to do, instead worked as a Peer Success Coach. Little direction from management (top-down issue), and ridiculously long and unnecessary meetings make it IMPOSSIBLE to get anything done. Also, the management stifled his student employees because (it seemed) he was very self-conscious about seeming lesser than his workers, and therefore took all their credit for himself.

    Advice to Management

    Less meetings that eat up 3-4 hours, more work that correlates with the job title
