    Graduate Research Assistant (Former Employee) Lincoln, NE

    ProsExcellent faculty, staff, and academic programs. Many opportunities are provided for research and professional development.

    A public university with grand dreams

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsAcademic environment makes for casual work environment. Working with students the best; positions with less direct interaction with students less rewarding.

    ConsAdministrative bloat. Hard to imagine growing student body when faculty positions are cut but administration grows. Hire people with direct missional impact, not more paper pushers.

    Grad School Food Science

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsYou have travelling allowance, and therefore you can build a network with food company representatives.

    ConsBe sure u choose the right adviser!!! Most of them are too busy to answer any of your questions. So be prepared that you will e all alone and at the end you might have to repeat many of your experiments that you thought you did a good job with. But what can we do without advising???

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake better care of your grad students!!!

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

    Friendly, positive environment with bureaucratic hoops

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood people (probably depends on the office), generous benefits, great hours, great and affordable Rec Center. Some of the bureaucratic hoops can be annoying but every position has its annoying bureaucratic stuff.

    ConsSalary raises are limited. If you are on East Campus, your lunch options are limited, although you are served by an excellent cafe. On City campus, the Union food is unhealthy, typical college fair, but you can easily walk downtown for healthier options.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
