Focused and energetic
Producer/Director/Writer (Former Employee), Troy, NYOctober 11, 2014
Pros: set my own hours, smart people, interesting job
Cons: impersonal, slow and infrequent communication
I was working remotely, so I would work independently and then once a week we would have an hour-long meeting where we would cover the progress from the previous week and then make sure we were all on the same page for the next week.

My co-workers and I got along well, no real tension. I liked my team.

The most fun part was the design work; the design team was very cooperative and engaging and enjoyed their work. The hardest part was motivating and monitoring people remotely- it is very difficult to get the full picture of what is happening without face to face meetings and seeing the results of all the hard work in person.

Work Study is what it is

Pros: nice environment
Cons: minimum wage
It's work study. It's not like it was ever going to be amazing with great pay and benefits but working in the library is great in that it provides you time to work on homework and other things when needed. There is stuff to do but we also have plenty of time to get things done.
