Research Associate in Environmental Health at Keck School of Medicine

Postdoctoral Research Associate (Current Employee) Los Angeles, CA

ProsAs in any academic position, the flexible time schedule is great. There are definitely opportunities for your own research, and to develop collaboration. It was also nice to be considered staff with the associated benefits

ConsAs in any academic position, the level of your happiness depends a lot on your supervisor. Also how well you can network with others relies on your supervisor. Mine was awful, which is why I rated the job so low.

Advice to Senior ManagementUnfortunately for me my supervisor made my experience awful. I think if there was a direct boss for my supervisor or mediator, I would have had the ability to make my situation better. Unfortunately none were available to me.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
