    Amazing health benefits. I believe my monthly payment was $34 for full coverage. Collaborative and positive atmosphere not only within department but multiple departments and colleges. $25 classes at UofA, ASU, NAU. "start-up" feel so multifaceted responsibilities.

    Low pay with small raise amounts.

    I worked at University of Arizona full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working with Dr. David T. Harris was a great experience. He knows how to treat his employees and get the job done. As an employee of The University of Arizona, I received competitive benefits and also was allowed to take classes for dirt cheap. It was also solid entry level hands-on experience working in a bio laboratory.

    Cons

    I thought it was a bit on the low end of the pay grade especially working with biohazardous human specimans on the daily. Also, social politics and pettiness seemed to get the best of a few coworkers at times. I guess the negatives of the job were the price to pay working at a university as opposed to competitive industry.
