    Former Employee - Graduate Research Assistant in Boston, MA

    I worked at Northeastern University as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I was a Graduate Research Assistant. I worked on a Legal aid project. Staffs are very resourceful and timely with what they do, willing to lend a helping hand. Excellence is one of the major core values.

    Cons

    Assignments were not as challenging as expected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should work on getting graduate students internship slots closely aligned to their desired concentration, especially students with international background, since this is one of the major elements used in advertising the LLM program especially.

Furthermore, I spoke to the same people the 2nd time around and the questions were largely the same. The conversation was somewhat difficult because I ended up referring to and elaborating on several of the same relevant experiences that I discussed in my first interview. Additionally, the interview processes are managed by different respective Associate Dir's within the office, and the scheduling of my interviews was incredibly difficult due to the disorganization of the person I was working with, though she was extremely friendly. They at one point asked me the question that I included which was

    • "The salary is X and it's non-negotiable (lower than expected for the Boston area). Our retirement benefits are pretty good but we can't compete financially with schools in our area. We want to bring you in next week and we know flights are really expensive, but we aren't going to pay for you. Are you still interested?"   Answer Question
