    Pros

    They tend to hire fun and friendly people so your co-workers are fun.

    Cons

    Incentives are given based on coworkers nominating each other for awards, which is great, except when they decide that you get nominated too much and that they need to give out awards to the people who haven't received them and didn't really do anything to deserve them.

    Advice to Management

    Come up with some other incentives to help employees continually improve and not become complacent.

    Pros

    They work with your schedule better than anybody else. I literally would enter in my work schedule and they would schedule me around it. You can even put times you prefer not to work and they will try and accommodate. Raises every semester.

    Cons

    You have to work basketball and football games to assist with parking. These are not negotiable, though you can request one or two off if you have things going on. Really good managers.

    Pros

    Benefits (especially healthcare) are amazing and make up for where salary lacks. Cost of living is cheap in Cache Valley and it is an extremely beautiful location with a small town feel.

    Cons

    Salary is lower than would like, but it's a state government job so you can't expect to make much unless your faculty or administration. But the benefits more than make up for where salary lacks
