Current Employee - Research Associate in Boston, MA

I have been working at Boston University full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Convenient location, reasonable benefits, great people to work with, active environment, work life balance is great, working hours are pretty flexible, right beside the Charles River and you can get a run along the river or even kayak on it during lunch break, shuttles are very convenient, very easy to get to medical center, Boston Symphony Hall and downtown

Cons

Administrative and micromanagement can be improved, salary is not that great compared to the neighbors

    Pros

    Access to advanced equipment, very collaborative work environment, interesting research opportunities, high level of responsibility early on, flexibility of hours.

    Cons

    Occasional bureaucratic hassle. Limited degree of mentorship or supervision (has its pluses and minuses). Sometimes, there is a lack of clarity about the overall objective of a project.

    Advice to Management

    Work on ways to improve faculty-student interaction from early on.


  2. Great Experience being a TA - LOW pay, but nice addition to resume.
