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

    Pros

    Flexible hours, tutoring others helps review material likely to be on the FE exam for engineering students, and helpful management.

    Cons

    Students can be mixed: some genuinely want the help, others use it as a crutch.

    Advice to Management

    It's a solid job for students, I would make minimal changes were I in charge.
