Senior Research Scientist (Former Employee), Boston, MA – July 1, 2015
Cons: Credit was not given for good work
As a professional I have rather contributed than learn any new tricks from the mediocre principle investigators. You create something great and unique it becomes their property and idea. It was twelve hours job everyday and yet pay and benefit were very poor. .
Boston University is an excellent employer with good benefits and advancement opportunities.
