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.RecommendsPositive Outlook
