    I worked at University of Minnesota full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great for independence and flexibility in both research and time management.
    Could learn anything you wanted in terms of what went on in the lab.

    Cons

    Salary was too low for the work being done. $30,000. But this is normal in academia I am learning.
    Often worked 7 days a week because animals were involved and cell culture etc.
    This is fine if you don't have a family but when a family is involved its too much especially for the salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your scientists more. Other than that, excellent work place, and great to gain experience.

    The process took about 5 weeks. I applied online and got a call about two weeks after. Went through two in-person interviews. The first one was with three supervisors, who I would be working under if I was to get the position. The second interview was with a PI and one of the supervisors from the first interview.
