Great staff

Research Assistant III (Current Employee)
Pittsburgh, PA

ProsThere are numerous opportunities to continue your education and training. Benefits are excellent! Healthcare and free bus pass. Also, there are plenty of opportunities to attend games and arts venues with half-priced tickets.

ConsMost of the research assistant jobs are grant funded so be prepared to only have a temporary position in most cases.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
