Pros

Great faculty for student employees. The faculty and graduate students in the chemical engineering department are eager to teach the students and help them past graduation.

Cons

Minimal payment ($10/hr) no matter how long you have been working in your lab. I also believe that there is a 10 or 20 hour maximum that you can work, limiting your paycheck.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I never dealt with management directly, but as I said above, the faculty is still great.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to work on cutting edge practices and software development, strong connections to companies that are large and matter, strong connections to individuals in the education and research world who know people all over.

    Cons

    Payment schedules are unreliable for undergraduate assistants. If you have time to sort through the various levels of paperwork you can get paid on time, but it is far too easy to slip through the cracks and then require a month to get back on track. Not good when it's your primary source of income. Frequently asked to work a rough schedule or get things done on weekends.
