3. Quite a bit of mobility between labs if one fails

Cons

1. Some projects are dull and monotonous
2. Some mentors aren't around most of the time due to conferences, travel, etc
3. Funding typical of academic institution (read: sparse)
4. Employee benefits are also sparse

    I have been working at Vanderbilt University part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The coworkers are friendly, management is understanding, and the pay is above minimum wage. It also is providing work experience that will will improve my chances for obtaining a well paying job after graduation.

    Cons

    Like with any company, it all depends on departments, management, and people. The book store was an unfortunate experience with poor management. The financial aid office has proven to be exceptionally better, but there is no room for advancement as a graduate student.


  2. "Awesome place to work"

    I worked at Vanderbilt University as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Vanderiblt was an awesome place to work, my supervisors were incredible and were very flexible with my schedule. As it was an internship there was a learning curve but once I got the hang of it most of it was a no brainer, I would highly recommend working here.

    Cons

    Some of the other people working in the Creative Services Department with me were a little strange and probably not the type you'd want to hang out with outside of the office, but they all mean well and there are plenty of others more outgoing in the office as well

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!
