    I have been working at University of Connecticut part-time

    Pros

    If you're interested in Information Technology, this is a great step towards your career. Working for your university's IT department looks great on your resume. Pros of the job is they prioritize your classes before work, allows you to learn more about computer hardware and software (as well as how to fix and diagnose problems) and management is good.

    Cons

    UConn doesn't allow students to go over 20 hours of work weekly during the semester. It also can be very slow at time, although, you can do your homework.
