    Pros

    Prestigious university. Good working environment and hours.

    Cons

    Northwestern University vs. Feinberg School of Medicine vs NMFF. It is often confusing which one I fall under and therefore which departments to call when IT services are needed.

    Current Employee - Research Assistant in Chicago, IL
    Current Employee - Research Assistant in Chicago, IL

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

    Pros

    There are a lot of great research opportunities as an undergraduate. I have worked here as a research assistant for a biology laboratory for disease therapies for atherosclerosis. My mentors are helpful, and I have learned a substantial amount about science research from the job. Plus, it looks great on a resume!

    Cons

    The school in general is very demanding on economics and pre-medical students. Definitely not an easy school, by any means.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't expect so much from undergraduates, in terms of courses
