Knowledge and experience in the field of research. Helped in exposure to new articles and publications related to the research on neuroeducation and embodied learning.

Good work-life balance, easy jobs for the most part, relatively flexible schedule
Complete lack of respect and dignity for student workers depending on where you work. No single job is universal, meaning the total hours you can work depend on the location you work at. Current designation pays me significantly less that what any other person could live off of, no maximum hours increase per week so I'm stuck working 20 hours and slightly better than minimum wage. Maintenance that was scheduled months ago has not been done to the building. Management choices are sub-par at best (I work in a service part of the uni dealing with public customers face-to-face with software and hardware only accessible in the location and my boss, who is frequently needed, is able to work remote for some reason) and constantly changing without warning. Events management does not communicate clearly or effectively leading to last minute events that students have to scramble to set-up and prepare for, and parking situation is horrible.

Coachable, dedicated students. Great colleagues.
Fear of arbitrary downsizing -- Lack of vision or explanation for major personnel cuts.
