    I worked at University of Massachusetts full-time

    Pros

    Decent opening rate of pay, if you can somehow get a full time position the benefits package is spectacular, and a large infastructure.

    Cons

    If you are hired as a non benefited employee it can take years before an attainable benefited position opens. And even then the scale of pay increase is very slow. Also no matter where you work, if you don't pay for a parking pass you will get ticketed and or towed.

    I worked at University of Massachusetts part-time

    Pros

    Overall it was a really nice balance of work and school.
    Learned how a place works "top-down".

    Cons

    Sometimes people would ask for unreasonable things to happen on an unreasonable timeline.

    Advice to Management

    Work with student concerns that are legitimate and ignore the ones that are just complaints.
