    Pros

    Overall, I was satisfied with the benefits (with the exception of how long it took to get COBRA coverage). More importantly, I worked with exceptional and competent people.

    Cons

    I wasn't allowed to work remotely, which was a huge disadvantage for me because I had a two hour commute (one way) on public transportation every day. I also was disappointed by how long it took to get COBRA coverage after my employment ended, which was especially frustrating because I was pregnant and needed health insurance.

    Advice to Management

    Please consider allowing more remote work options, especially for those of us who live far away. Most of the work I did could be done remotely on my own.

    Pros

    As a student, any on campus job prioritizes schooling over job. Being able to take off work during finals week is wonderful. Pay is fair.

    Cons

    Administration is unorganized no matter where you work on campus. Overall, it is good to work on campus and I would highly recommend it

    Advice to Management

    Make sure supervisors know what they are doing as supervisors before they supervise. Sometimes students become

    Pros

    Benefit package is amazing, health care is affordable, they contribute to retirement, and PTO is great.

    Cons

    Management is short-sighted and paranoid. I've seen many lower pay-grade positions 'thrown under the bus' in order for the supervisor to look good and keep there job. HR seems to go with the higher-ranking side.

    Advice to Management

    Do some 'real world' investigating in Business Administration. You can't expect employees to stay when you personally treat them as bottom feeders.
