Human Computer Interaction Intern (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – July 5, 2017
I learned a lot in the areas of software building and testing as well as the steps need to write a successful paper. The workplace was very modern with free snacks and a lot of very smart people. I would say that the hardest part of the job was leaving since you can only accomplish so much in a 10 week internship. What I most enjoyed was not being the smartest person in the room at all times, you learn how to be humble and build great communication skills.
Graduate Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – June 23, 2017
My adviser was very patient. I learned a lot from her. She is very supportive and patient to teach you things that one might struggle in. Biggest positive is she is always available when one of her students need her. She makes sure you have an all-round development while working with her - from improving writing skills to your public presentation skills.

The hardest part of the job was trying to work in a noisy environment.

Adjunct Instructor, English (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – May 31, 2017
Rigorous and stressful--however, enormous support is provided by brilliant and engaging coworkers and administrators. If you can manage the challenging stress culture, you will learn a great deal and enjoy yourself doing it. Generally speaking, temporary faculty are treated quite well.
