  3. Great job to work at while in school. Pretty low wage for summer opportunities. Would only work part time for them.

    Pros

    Great resources, easy access to the t, access to parking and campus resources. They also offer discount mbta monthly passes for employees, which is great.

    Cons

    The administration can be very unorganized. For instance, I was asked for my spring schedule before I was hired, then asked again after being hired. They accidentally gave me the wrong schedule, anyway, so I'm not really sure what happened.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to make it so lab managers communicate more effectively with everyone in the lab, please.
