    Great benefits, great co-workers. Friendly staff. Good location on public transit. Pay was ok, not as good as working in the private sector

    Pay is not as good as private sector. Very limited parking is available for entry level workers.

    Advice to Management

    I didn't have much contact with senior management but most people I worked with seemed happy, so keep doing what you're doing!

    Pros

    It is great being in a hospital and getting advice from physicians about the future. You get first hand experience in the clinical research process which is helpful later in life.

    Cons

    This job can sometimes be depressing, as oftentimes you will be around sick children or hear that a child unfortunately passed away.

    I only wish I could come back and get another job working here.
