    I worked at Washington University in St. Louis (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked in a research team within the Dept of Urologic Surgery's clinical research team and the staff and supervisors were amazing. I was one of a handful of students, but if you show you're halfway competent and have people skills they were so eager to invest in young people. The more I was there, the more ownership they gave me over projects.

    Cons

    Some Urology physicians were sweet and kind, other were terrible to work with and RAGING sexists. I tried to limit contact with them as much as possible.
    Revolving door of student researchers was frustrating - as much as staff tried to ensure good results students would be on projects for months and still mess things up - and I had to clean after their messes
