    I worked at Washburn University (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits generous. Good Fit for the IT services, and had opportunity to engage in cutting edge systems, and help make major system upgrades including hosted environments. Helping staff and students with technology and faculty and staff. My favorite work was working with diverse technologies, including new registers, chip and pin retail systems.

    Cons

    With the Hosted environment, once installed and functioning, there was very little IT work necessary going forward. I really wasn't interested in selling computers, I want to work in IT systems that challenge my skills and work

    Advice to Management

    IT is moving quickly. The hosted environment minimizes current costs, but could leave the company with lost skills that could be important in operations.

    I was provided the opportunity to work on a lot of interesting projects.

    There was a lot of downtime. Seemed to hard to bridge the gap from networking to systems administration.

    Involve the assistant role in more systems administration work.

    I have been working at Washburn University part-time

    Pros

    Helpful and knowledgeable co-workers; Will work around your schedule as a student; Free time during work hours can be used for studying; Management is generally good about informing you of any changes to policy; Dress code is very relaxed; If you make a mistake, you will be gently corrected but no one will make you feel bad about it; Basically, expectations are very low, so if you are even a little bit competent, you will be appreciated.

    Cons

    Certain customers can be challenging to deal with, as with any customer service job; Pay starts low and stays low, although you may get a small raise when you renew your yearly contract.
