Good Experience
Research Assistant (Current Employee), Boston, MAApril 11, 2015
Pros: Learning data anaysis from the basics
Cons: Short Breaks
My first job and so a very good experience for me.
My typical day at work would be to meet my professor, discuss a strategy to follow to accomplish a goal for the week, He provides me with reading material and then I do the allocated task in that time period and ask him if I have any queries.


The hardest part was to make my working style like more of research oriented. Learning as well as implementing. Took me some time but I could do it.

Most enjoyable part is the meetings with my professor. It is not only related to the work we are supposed to di that particular week but some or the other new topic of discussion that is much much more interesting like some new study recently, etc

A job where you can work on your own time.
Web Design Assistant (Current Employee), Boston, MAApril 7, 2015
Pros: Good pay, great work flexibility, great employer.
Cons: No co-workers.
Typically, I am given a task to do by my employer and I would come back to ask for more tasks once I finished the current task. All of these tasks involve the use of a computer. Every task differs from other as I would sometimes be asked to design a website for it to display a pay-pal button or I could be asked to design an online survey for her students. The hardest part of the job was that I had no co-workers and I am basically solving many problems by myself. The most enjoyable part of the job is the fact that I can work on my own time.

Fun Workplace, low pay
Various Positions (Current Employee), Boston, MAMarch 28, 2015
Pros: Friendly Employees
Cons: Poor pay
The pay is low, but the fellow employees are great and fun. A typical day would be get in there and start sorting the mail, log in packages when they arrive and help the student workers organize the mail further and send them out on deliveries then help with the shipping store and help people get packages. The hardest part of the job is tracking down mail that people misaddressed, the most enjoyable part would be hanging with the employees when it's not busy.

Fun environment with various interactions with all types of students
Advisor, Student-Athlete Support Services (Current Employee), Boston, MAJanuary 21, 2015
Everything at NU was fantastic besides my supervisor's accountability (Athletic Department). In my time at NU I was not paid on time over half a dozen different occasions with ultimately led me to have limited trust in them and the department. Other than that, everything was fantastic. My case is simply one out of a thousand so do not let that deter coming to Boston and this outstanding university.

Interesting class to be a teaching assistant for
Teaching Assistant: ARCH1450 Understanding Design (Former Employee), Boston, MAJanuary 6, 2015
I typically graded assignments handed in online by students. I learned more about design concepts and examples of design solutions. Worked together with other TAs and created rubrics and grading policies. The hardest part of the job was having to give less than satisfactory grades and the most enjoyable part of the job was being able to give outstanding grades to the students who really demonstrated hard work and an interest in the subject.
