    I have been working at Virginia Tech part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Virginia Tech has research-oriented labs, that introduce the student employees to a variety of disciplines of research. Especially, the students get hands-on experience in the field, and can develop their professional side admirably in preparation for finding a job in the industry. I work in the microelectronics laboratory, and I am thoroughly indebted to the University to improve my technical expertise in the field of microelectronics.

    Cons

    Ultimately, working at a University will only give you a perfunctory experience of what actually happens in the industry, and does not completely prepare you for the real world, since the job here is more or less fixed, unless you really screw it up with your advisor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think the management is doing a brilliant job in employing students and grooming them as professionals. And at Virginia Tech you are almost guaranteed funding by research. Keep it up guys.

    Pros

    Relatively good pay, health benefits. Some good co-workers. I can't think of 20 good words to say about this employer.

    Cons

    No regard for employee happiness. Massively egotistical management. And then there are the law suits....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just don't.
