    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 Management

    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.

  11. Okay

    Pros

    Not a bad place to work. Good benefits and time off policies. Not a place you can move up/.

    Cons

    No room for advancement. Paying for parking is outrageous. Senior management doesn't even know you exist.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your employees
