The faculty at RPI are excellent educators, mentors and research scientists. Graduate students are pressed hard to do well and juggle expectations as students, research assistants or TA's, and also to do their own original research. This is expected at all good universities.

RPI is a very easy and manageable place to work as a student, as they provide all of the leeway necessary to manage work/life/school balance. Relations between work supervisors and students seem to be pretty positive. However, I have not heard positive things from faculty about working for RPI, though I cannot speak personally to that.

Student (Current Employee) – Troy, NY – January 9, 2017
Rensselaer's physics curriculum and workload were more intense than I had originally anticipated. It forced me to change the way I approached my studies, and to adopt a more disciplined work ethic. I benefited greatly from the culture at RPI- the students in my classes were the smartest and most driven group of people I'd ever met and it brought the best out of me as a result.

Office of Dean (Former Employee) – Troy, NY – December 31, 2015
The typical day consists of guiding and assisting students with whatever needs they have. With the wonderful help from upper management, you can learn how to assist students as best as possible. The other staff members are just as helpful with any needs or questions you need help with. The best part of the job is being able to interact with a large number of people on a daily basis. The hardest part is fitting the work schedule with your class schedules. Although, that in itself is not so difficult.
