    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Northeastern University part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I had the opportunity to work under Professor Nik Bear Brown of AI Skunkworks as part of Northeastern University. It was a great experience and he gave me full freedom to express my thoughts on the COVID-19 situation. I got a job within one month of joining and had to quit.

    Cons

    No cons. Professor Nik Brown is the best professor who shows real compassion to students especially international students. Other professor ought to learn a thing or two from this man!! There is no use of gaining so much knowledge unless you help out students.
