    Academic tutor for one semester

    Academic Tutor (Former Employee) Tempe, AZ

    ProsI was a student tutor for business classes on the Tempe campus. It was a solid job with flexible hours and not a huge time commitment - perfect for a full time student. It's also great because you get paid while also brushing up on your academic knowledge.

    ConsIt is very difficult for even the brightest students to remember enough information from previous classes to be able to tutor well. Unless the subject is a tutor's forte (like their major), many tutors struggle to help students in certain classes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere should be better training to help the tutors brush up on key knowledge in order to help students better. Management should enlist the help of teachers to put together study guides and quick facts sheets that the tutors can reference. It would also be good to update the tutors on what material is being covered each week in the core classes, so that they can prepare to help in those areas.

    Great place to work as a student.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Tempe, AZ

    ProsClose to local bar scene after work, always changing work with the growing university. Was great as a student since i was in and out between classes, my office was right between the buildings i frequently had classes

    ConsParking isn't covered for employees, and even when you buy a pass it's not a promised spot unless you part super far away

    Advice to Senior Managementmore stuff on the walls really... blank white everything is boring and was the only down side to work

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Exciting research, vibrant environment, great faculties

    Research Technologist (Current Employee) Tempe, AZ

    ProsBioDesign institue has some of the best facilities and equipment. The open set up of the labs really promotes interactions with other labs in sharing equipment and ideas. Great environment for learning, growing and trying innovative ideas

    ConsThough the benefits are amazing, the overall pay is low, mostly grant based funding, so jobs are not very stable.

    A dynamic and highly progressive school

    Graduate Research Associate (Current Employee) Tempe, AZ

    Pros- opportunities for multidisciplinary research
    - university is constantly improving its infrastructure

    Cons- a policy of inclusivity and access to education means that a large portion of incoming students will fail to keep up, thereby affecting the quality of education for more ambitious students

    Great opportunities, if you are willing to work for them.

    Office Specialist Senior (Former Employee) Tempe, AZ

    ProsOnce you are staff, as long as you are willing to work and are intelligent with great customer service you can move ahead or laterally with ease.

    ConsFor some of the higher jobs you need at least a bachelor's degree but more then likely a master's degree. Luckily, you can get your master's while you work there.

    Advice to Senior ManagementA little more flexibility with work and school schedules for staff members.

    Graduate Research Assistant

    Management Intern (Current Employee) Tempe, AZ

    ProsMy boss has been really great. I work part time and he's very flexible about fitting my hours in around classes and an outside internship, even letting me work online rather than come into the office.
    It's a fast paced environment where I'm working on something different all the time, which I love
    Looks good on a resume, especially if you're planning on staying in the area after graduation

    ConsThe Management Intern positions do come with tuition benefits, but no insurance, which can be rough as a grad student not making much money.
    While ASU is a great atmosphere, the city of Phoenix is nothing special. It's all spread out so you have to drive everywhere, and outside of Tempe there isn't a lot to attract younger people.
