    I worked at Carnegie Mellon University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The project and the work that I was doing was really cool and interesting!

    Cons

    The amount I was paid was severely below my value. I was asked to do a large amount of work outside of my expertise, which took a long time and was incredibly frustrating. I had very little feedback from my supervisor that would improve my skills. Forced to sit through long, tedious, unrelated lab meetings. The HR people I dealt with seemed like they were annoyed with my existence and were uninterested in helping me out.

    Advice to Management

    Shorten lab meetings, pay at an appropriate rate, use employees for what they're good at, find HR staff who are interested in helping employees.
