Pros

Awesome place to work! The managers are extremely nice & understanding, as the company is campus-based and comprised mostly of students. Extremely flexible schedules, good working principles emphasized, cashier and customer service training provided, and many opportunities for growth!

Cons

Starting wage is a bit low in comparison to other on-campus jobs, but that is compensated by the flexible hours & pleasant working environment. Some tasks are repetitive & can get boring (i.e. cashiering for hours, stocking, etc.).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Mark which department each employee works in on the employee nametags so that customers understand that an employee temporarily working in another department as extra manpower is simply from a different department and not just incompetent.

    Pros

    The mentor is brilliant and kind. The co-workers are helpful and smart. You have access to many seminars, which are extremely helpful. You have information of many vacations. A really lovely lab!

    Cons

    I can't think of any downside. maybe you have to spent some time to adjust to it, but people there are pretty friendly. Well, pressure is always there. But it is also a challenge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think maybe it is better to give a specific work at the very beginning. I spent the first month lost in the field but finally survive.

    Pros

    Diversity, good weather, There is fairly good activity in science. If you enjoy the outdoor activity this place is one of the best.

    Cons

    Downside for couple with kids (no child care expense). Some of the faculty don't treat postdoc fellow fairly. The union recently formed but it's early stage to be effective.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The leader group should find a way to listen to the people in campus during decision making, for example postdoc union.
