    Pros

    There are a lot of opportunities. You have lot of room to move and grow to meet your own benefits. Overall great place to work.

    Cons

    A big time commitment. If you are a student with a busy schedule you will have to learn how to manage your time very well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked very hard in my position and I felt the compensation was not adequate for my effort. Keep in mind that you want your employees to be happy.

    Current Employee - Lab Technician Senior in Detroit, MI

    I have been working at Wayne State full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The hours are lenient, the atmosphere relaxed and there is a lot to learn. They were pretty much willing to work around my part time grad class schedule as long as I was available and prepared for labs.

    Cons

    Working with professors and students requires you to be on your mental toes much of the day so must be good with people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lab techs are worth more than is reflected in their salary, and experience is invaluable. I know my department wanted me to stay and needed the help, but I literally could not afford to work here. I would have stayed for all of grad school and contributed to the development of the program I was a part of if I could have even scraped by on the salary. Alas, I could not.

    Pros

    There are many perks to working in Detroit. The campus is well kept and Corktown area is nice! It is a great place to work if you go to school there.

    Cons

    Know where to go and where not to go. Obviously don't work out to your car at night alone. There is security who will safely escort you to your vehicle.
