A good first job but kind of boring.

Research Assistant (Former Employee)

ProsFor a first "real" job, I felt I had great pay and benefits and some substantial work. I was glad to be working a full-time job when so many friends could only find internships. My manager got me on a lot of different project tasks and was certainly interested in my professional development.

ConsThe day-to-day job functions can be pretty boring: entering survey data, filling out spreadsheets, etc. In general, I rarely felt intellectually challenged by my work.

Advice to Senior ManagementIntroduce research assistants to project design early on so they have a better idea of how their work contributes to the bigger picture.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
