Pros

Autonomy. Ideas and suggestions listened to and taken seriously. Hours flexible. Great deal of personal satisfaction with job being done. Helped my prof with literature searches and assisted a PhD student with construction of his project.

Cons

Some very long days. Had a problem when we started the project and I was there until midnight. Not unwilling to put in the extra time when needed as some days were lighter. Only a summer job. Wish it could be full time.

Advice to Management

No advice. Management was terrific.

    Cons

    - attitudes of some senior staff

    - guidelines for workplace behaviour are not accessible nor followed

    Encourage innovation rather than status quo. Encourage those in high places to challenge themselves even more and try to both teach and learn from the more junior employees.
