Postdoctoral & PhD Researcher, Instructor (Current Employee), Fairfax, VAApril 10, 2014
I'm a postdoctoral researcher right now. At this level, your work really depends on the topic of your research and the people, especially your advisor, your're working on. You don't much interact with other people.

OHRL inexperienced managers
Maintenance Assistant (Former Employee), Fairfax, VAFebruary 28, 2014
Pros: great working staff, good benefits, 98% good people
Cons: watch out for the 2%, they need to make themselves important.
I have very little knowledge of the GMU academics. I think probably the classes are good.
Student housing has too many problems left unresolved due to the incompetence of the housing maintenance management team.
They need more high end experience with apartment or hotel maintenance procedures. I believe there are no managers with previous experience.
