I have been working at Emory University full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great location, good size, lots of access to interesting events

Cons

I was not a good fit for the research lab I was in. While others seemed to be happy sitting silently at their cubicles all day, I felt like I needed more communication and collaboration with peers.

My supervisor was also rather disengaged, and in general it seemed that nobody had any passion for what they were doing. I decided to leave because it was a depressing work environment.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Emory University part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - flexible hours that are scheduled around your classes
    - great circulation team
    - quiet workspace
    - in the evenings, often downtime at the desk where you can (unofficially and sneakily) do some work (but don't get caught!)
    - they covered the cost of hours that I worked beyond my work study allotment, which most work study positions won't do

    Cons

    - midterm and finals season is MISERABLE because everyone's in the library much more and checking things in and out like mad
    - the team changes often since most of us are student workers who are graduating at different rates


  2. "My experience was a mostly positive work environment, with great exposure to scholars and doctoral-level research."

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Emory University as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    The supervising professors generally care and invest in your ability to think critically and perform well in a teaching environment.

    Cons

    The pay does not necessarily correlate to the amount of work that is performed; very individualistic as opposed to communal.
