Assistant to Associate Dean of Medicine (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN. – January 28, 2014
There were no typical days within the section that I maintained for IUSM. Each day presented a different problem within scheduling, microscope usage, Medicial Science building functioning, interactionmore... with students/faculty. I worked in conjunction with departments within the University, outside vendors, contractors dealing with equipment, construction, maintenance, housekeeping, and various other elements concerning the MS building. Working with other co-workers to get projects completed with quality and efficiency. Satisfying the entire populace of faculty/staff had lead to some problems when dealing with priorities of the IUSM. Classes before departmental and having to inform the departments of this. Meeting and dealing with the students each and every year. Getting to know some quite well. Then seeing these same students years later as they are highly trained professionals. less
always something new
not being able to help everyone with all their needs.
Fun, relaxed environment to work in and being involved in adolescent research
Database Administrator (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – December 17, 2013
My day would vary from testing software, writing research questionnaires, creating electronic surveys via Qualtrics, working with developers, sitting in on discovery meetings,etc. I learned that I am passionatemore... about data and the vast amount of information it can give you. I worked on a very small team so I did not have a 'manager' per se, he was more of a team lead. He is very learned regarding IT and was a great teacher. My co-workers were fun to work with and very helpful when needed. The hardest part of the job was acclimating to working in academia. It is the polar opposite of the corporate work environment. Very laid-back. The most enjoyable part of the job was new things I learned and the people I worked with. less
learning about research and everything it related
salaries are funded by 'soft' money and when there are no research grants there is no money.
