Interning at Case Western
Student Intern (Former Employee), Cleveland, OHJanuary 29, 2015
Pros: professional work environment, learning opportunites, challenging opportunities
Cons: often working overtime, poor english skills from foreigners, lack of adaptability when it comes to schedule
Case Western is a great university for the most part. It carries a very professional air to it. But the lab work is demanding. I often worked over hours with no pay for experiments. Case Western is fairly diverse, but there is a surprising con to this: Some foreigners within speak poor English. It can be very strenuous trying to understand what they are saying.

Working as a student
Laboratory Research Assistant (Former Employee), Cleveland, OHJanuary 9, 2015
Over the years, I've held a few student jobs at Case Western Reserve University, though I can't speak of being employed outside of the student employment positions. In the positions I've held, there was a nice balance between work and school, and many times the supervisors/employers were understanding of our sometimes unpredictable student schedules. The pay is decent (usually around $12/hr), so I would recommend getting a job as a student, if possible. It's also a great opportunity to gain experience and to network with professors and other people in your field of study.

Enjoyed working with students and professors.
Department Assistant, Chemistry Department (Former Employee), Cleveland, OHOctober 21, 2014
Pros: working with the professors learning different ways to create their work.
Cons: not being able to work overtime.
Didn't have a typical day at work everyday was different. I guess answering phones, scheduling meetings, making travel arrangements, typing classwork. What I learned is to be creative in everything you do. Organizing and managing various projects for dean and professors. I enjoyed working with my co-workers and being cross-trained for various positions in the department. The hardest part of the job was watching departments not interacting with each other. The most enjoyable part of the job was bringing the departments together as one. Being able to work together. The other things is learning to software programs.

Taking Ownership

Fun Place to work
Research Associate II (Former Employee), Cleveland, OHAugust 12, 2014
Pros: constantly learning
Cons: work/family balance is hard
Case is a good place to work. Interacting with Principle Investigators and Graduate students is rewarding, but can also be disheartening. Unless, you are willing to put in the time to advance in your career and have your PI support you in that movement.
Days can be long, weekends can be required if your project needs that attention.

Research-based school with music library, yes!
Student Assistant (Former Employee), Cleveland, OHJuly 16, 2014
Pros: flexible hours, great faculty
Cons: student job
Working for the Case Western Reserve University library system is a really nice job. As a student assistant you get very flexible hours and a substantial amount of on the job training and support. The library system is a great place if you prefer quiet, structured interaction with people along with stretches of time to yourself for studying or homework. The Kulas Music Library is a satellite branch of the main library and is pretty cozy. Since the music department itself is small, you get to know the professors and grad students. You also get access to many excellent recordings and musical literature.
