    Current Employee - Graduate Research Assistant in Boston, MA

    I have been working at Northeastern University part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    As a graduate research assistant, I have been able to work on cutting edge research here at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. The Engineering faculty at Northeastern receives the second highest number of funded projects in the New England area after MIT. Great facilities especially if you are into MEMS/ Semiconductor hardware. the cleanroom facilities are top notch.

    Cons

    The downsides are simply the same as in any graduate school research work. Sometimes you are stuck with a problem whose solution you don't even know exists. But to work through this barriers and uncertainties make research even more fun.

    I have been working at Northeastern University full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits are very good and the free tuition great! There are a lot of managers who love to see their employees grow as people and in their careers.

    Cons

    Working with students can sometimes be a thankless job and you must be very self-motivated and maintain a good attitude. They can and will push your patience to the limit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take suggestions seriously from employees who are doing the work and implement those suggestions. They are involved hands-on in a lot of processes and often they know best what needs to be changed.
