  1. "Meh"

    Current Employee - Research Assistant in Lexington, KY
    Current Employee - Research Assistant in Lexington, KY
    Recommends
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The benefits are great and it's a very flexible place to work-- great work/life balance. You can almost always get time off if you need to.

    Cons

    The infrastructure of the university is terrible, though-- no one ever knows what's going on and it takes a million years to get anything done if you have to rely on people outside of your own office.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together and get rid of all the bureaucracy. There is no reason I should have to get 5 peoples' approval to pay a research subject.

    Pros

    - Intelligent Coworkers
    - Reasonable and understanding management
    - Great pay for college students
    - Breaks during school holidays!
    - Intrinsically rewarding

    Cons

    There really isn't much I can speak poorly of "The Study"-- occasionally coworkers would slack off and management doesn't easily control or stop that, which forces you to work much harder, but I personally enjoyed the extra work at times.

    Advice to Management

    Create some incentive or require students to provide more feedback for the service they receive.
    Possibly require that tutors pass academic tests for the subject they tutor.
