    I have been working at University of Missouri St Louis part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Instructional Support Services (ISS) provides me with real world experiences while providing experience in management in the Senior Consultant role by tracking and delegating class schedules for hundreds of active classes for support each day.

    Cons

    As ISS is a campus provided job, students are only allowed to work part time.

    Advice to Management

    Work with Senior Consultants more on a one-on-one basis as opposed to strictly group settings for more accurate transparency.
