    I worked at University of Missouri part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Employers worked around class schedules very well. I worked for 4 years in different IT departments and all were well ran for the given resources.

    Cons

    During the beginning and end of semesters it is a madhouse almost everywhere. Especially being a student while working can really stretch a person thin.

    Pros

    I had flexible hours and a great boss. The work environment was pleasant with computer access and plenty of resources.

    Focus series to serve students rather than yourselves. Cut the fat off budgets like unneeded workers and equipment.
