A Dynamic and Challenging Academic Environment
Broadcasting Assistant (Former Employee) –  Princeton, NJJanuary 7, 2016
I was first hired as a part time employee with the Broadcasting Department and found the work and environment to be absolutely wonderful. My coworkers, many of whom I remain in contact with, were both hard working and inspirational. My boss was very professional; understanding and patient during my time there. When the work dynamic changed and I became a full time employee working 60 hour weeks. I found the work/life balance changed drastically and as a result I was unable to meet the demand.
Pros
Pretty campus, wonderful work environment, free classes/lectures
Cons
Temporary employment
