    Pros

    Atmosphere, Peers, Location, and Personal Growth are all pros for being a part of the community here. The campus is very nice. Payments were on-time.

    Cons

    Wages are not necessarily the best, public transportation is not as available as other areas in D.C., did not lead to new opportunities.


  7. Very satisfied with my experience working for this company. Lots of flexibility in research projects and opportunities.

    Pros

    I have plenty of opportunities for professional growth and development, such as attending trainings to broaden my skill set and the ability to co-design and oversee research projects. I enjoy being able to take leadership of my projects. Good time off procedure, and lots of holidays since the university is religious and observes national holidays.

    Cons

    Sometimes the bureaucracy at the university can be frustrating. It often takes a long time to get things approved, especially salary increases.

    Advice to Management

    Consider allocating more staff to manage procedural issues and offer free gym memberships.

    Pros

    Resourceful and supportive community. Modern technology in the hospital and clinic offices. Caring and established professors.

    Cons

    Metro does not go to campus, there is a separate bus system. Parking is severely limited. Construction projects seems to always be in progress.

    Advice to Management

    Less construction detours and faster completion of projects.

    Pros

    This position offers a stipend and full scholarship. It gives me the chance to perform original research in literary studies and to work as a Teaching Assistant in the School of Continuing Studies.

    Cons

    Of course, the stipend is quite low, but that's to be expected in a MA program. The quality of experience changes from semester to semester depending on who you work with as your professor.
