    Try to make sure you have consistent funding before hiring new people and then letting them go 13 months later,

    Pros

    I learned a lot on the job but it was a job meant for recent college graduates looking for a gap year before graduate school and the pay is structured that way. Great if you want patient interaction for a medical school application.

    Cons

    The funding is terrible and I never got a raise or even a mention of a raise. It felt awful to work hard and not be compensated for my bachelor's degree and my high quality work. Working harder wouldn't mean a raise or promotion. No room for advancement. You do it for the experience, certainly not the money.
