    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.

    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

    Pros

    One of the best schools of medicine in Michigan, and the the largest single-campus medical school in the nation with more than 1,000 medical students. It offers MSc degree, and Ph.D. and M.D./Ph.D. programs in multiple areas of basic science. Friendly and supportive faculty.

    Cons

    It is safer to live in the surroundings, though during the last year new buildings and development are being established in the area with young professionals moving there.

    Pros

    They are willing to work around class schedules, and enjoy seeing their employees succeed.

    Some areas are a little understaffed, which makes it difficult to take vacations if you aren't already a full time employee.

    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.

    Advice to Management

    None
