Teaching Assistant (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – April 14, 2016
During my doctoral studies I worked as an instructor for undergraduate Microeconomics and a teaching assistant for a number of different courses in both undergraduate and Ph.D. programs. Through this experience, I had the opportunity to develop my oral and writing skills in many ways and become well prepared to make an immediate contribution.
Great place, you are surrounded by seriously smart people

Carnegie Mellon University is a fantastic place to do the things you love the most. Every professor I have interacted with (either as a student, or staff) was always willing to give you a hand, and it wasn't hard to find one that was interested in what you wanted to do.
Graduate Teaching Assistant (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – March 11, 2016
I love helping students get a better understanding of finance and financial statement analysis.
Attempting to meet the needs of over 100 students can be challenging; however, my manager works tirelessly to give her teaching assistants numerous pedagogical tools to promote success, and my coworkers are supportive and dedicated.
Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – March 3, 2016
Worked as a research assistant so was mostly focussed on my own research and didn't interact so much with employees outside of my research group. Obviously, great place for research if you're interested in academia.
ADMISSIONS & ENROLLMENT COORDINATOR (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – February 29, 2016
The work was not what I was told it would be when I accepted the position. It was very basic, nothing challenging. There was no room for advancement within the department. Management was stuffy and condescending. I always asked for extra work to do and was told "when I have something for you, I'll let you know, just do what you are told to do." It was a very demeaning type atmosphere. Management was top heavy. Twelve managers to 4 coordinators. The culture is very liberal and the department had many foreign students. I would have liked to have worked more closely with the students.
Hour for lunch and pay was great
Management, no open door policy or room for discussion
Wonderful place to work only let down by the funding issues inherent in science work.
Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – February 8, 2016
I worked at the Human Computer Interaction Institute (HCII) at CMU as a lab assistant and it was easily one of the best jobs I've ever had. I learned innumerable things about language and AI tech as well as about education in general. Management was absolutely wonderful, genuinely concerned for employee's well-being and extremely personable without ever giving up leadership status. The folks I worked with were fascinating, from every walk of life and a joy to be around. The hardest part of the job was watching the same video clips again and again while trying to annotate exactly what conversational strategies were being used, balancing a smidgen of instinct with observable fact. The most enjoyable part was knowing how my work was actually making a difference in the world and furthering scientific study.
Flexible hours, very low-stress work environment, a job that truly means something to you
Doctoral Student (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – January 11, 2016
One of the best schools to perform interdisciplinary research. Having both a scientific and an engineering mindset, I believe I was exposed to best of both worlds during my time at CMU, from running experiments at a synchrotron to investigating mechanical performance of aerospace components.
A place where you can really make the world better
Research Assistant (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – September 30, 2015
During my studying in CMU, i've to say it's a fantastic place. I meet with many talented people here and learned a lot from them. With the supervision of professor levent burak kara, I improved my skills and widen my horizon to a new level, hoping to bring my skills into the industry.
