    Pros

    It is a good work environment where you are left on your own to get the work done once assigned.

    Cons

    The work assigned can become quite repetitive and you may feel you have too much time to spare after work is done.

    Advice to Management

    Management should try to engage with the student more, give more work, give more responsibility rather than admin work.
