      Sometimes there is poor communication from higher managers. Student workers can not always show up. Sometimes scheduling and getting your hours is difficult.

      Toxic Work Environment

      Pros

      Paid time off, sick days, holidays off, vacation during Christmas week.

      Cons

      One of the selling points is the ability to apply for tuition remission, but depending on your employer, they will either support you and the time you need to obtain your degree or they won't-in my case I wasn't able to attend the program I wanted because there were classes scheduled in the middle of the work day. You have to pay for parking and I personally experienced age discrimination- being young means more responsibilities are put on you and you "don't get away with things" that older people/people with more seniority do.

      Pros

      This is for the most part a great place to work.

      Cons

      It is sometimes very difficult for a staff person to be promoted to an admin position. There was a PhD who spent more than a decade trying to become a director.
