    Pros

    It was work study and I had such a great advisor that allowed me enough study time. Good opportunity for growth and development as well

    Cons

    There was eventually a need for more experimental techniques to be learnt but we did no have the necessary resources to accomplish that.

    Advice to Management

    I am very hardworking and always give 100% on the job.I learn fast and can work in a team and own's initiative

    Depends on Department and Supervisor

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Memphis, TN
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Memphis, TN

    I worked at University of Memphis (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great retirement and insurance benefits as well as payment of tuition at any Tennessee Board of Regents college.

    Cons

    The person I worked for hired me basically to fire me, I believe. She was very rude and did not train me and did not require her two other employees to train me. I am a somewhat older worker and she kept reminding me of that.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your supervisors are not bullying workers and take employee complaints seriously.
