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

    Pros

    The school takes great care to ensure that work study has plenty of time and balance for school. It's also a great place to work for in general, with a great culture of dedicated people.

    Cons

    The only con I can really think of is that as a part time worker, you don't get all the general benefits that full time does, such as the ability to use payroll deduction at the computer store.
