Boring work, OK staff

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

Pros- lots of helpful employees
- interesting focus of work
- overall an ok experience, but can find better opportunities

Cons- lab technician uneducated and unfriendly, could not perform simple tasks; as a result the job of researchers becomes more difficult
-work-study students are made to do menial tasks and not given interesting work; you can do much better in terms of a work-study position

Advice to Senior Management- screen your hires better

    A great place to work, as long as you can put up with the typical bureaucracy and lethargy of a large institution.
