Pros

Relative autonomy and ability to create projects. Excellent work environment. Am given the resources necessary to complete my work efficiently and effectively. Management is open to new ideas as to how improve operations.

Cons

Needs to have more autonomy and trust in executing and completing projects. Fair amount of micro-management in menial tasks. Not enough direction and support in implementing new projects.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allow for more tasks to be taken on by non-management personnel. The level of control can create an environment that could stifle creativity. Allow for employees to make their own judgements as to what would be best for the organization, so as to support professional growth.

    Pros

    -part time employees get at least $5.50 that they can use to purchase food at anytime during their shift
    -students dont have to pay taxes since it is an on-campus job and the management works with you and your class schedule as well as your other campus activities as well

    Cons

    tend to do the same thing over and over again so things can get a little drawn out and boring

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    doing a great job keep it up
