    Pros

    Great community
    HR is awesome!
    Amazing coworkers!

    Cons

    Parking is awful. The commute to the Texas Medical Center in itself its crazy though, so it really is not a huge concern.

    Advice to Management

    While working as an intern, I would have loved to have the opportunity to meet more people other than the office staff. I think providing these networking opportunities to students will bring them back when they graduate!

    Pros

    The Work-Life Balance was pretty optimal. My boss was personally fantastic, and I was allowed to choose my own research in a way.

    Cons

    The compensation could have been better. Some people in the program were simply used as free labor.

  6. This was a great company to work at. They offered me a lot of great value and taught me a lot to work on the bench.
