Social Work Intern (Former Employee) – New Brunswick, NJ – July 22, 2016
The director and everyone in the office made work easy and fun. It was a collegial environment where everyone's opinion mattered. Most importantly, every one was passionate about social justice, advocacy and the passion to serve the voiceless people in the country and outside the country.
Part-time lecturer (Former Employee) – New Brunswick, NJ – May 28, 2014
Life as an adjunct professor is notoriously stressful and unpredictable, but Rutgers is definitely one of the better employers for this kind of work. Pay is competitive and full-time faculty make an effort to communicate with you and provide feedback on performance. Students are high-quality and enjoyable to teach. Drawbacks are lack of benefits and job security, although the university is currently taking measures to improve on both fronts, e.g. providing retirement accounts and health insurance.
A normal day at work consists of custodial/ maintenance work at a college campus. There are various buildings throughout the campus however my primary assignment was in the science building. The management is somewhat laid-back, but can be forgetful at times. The co-workers are a wide ranged assortment of people, but overall very hardworking and down to earth. The hardest part of the job is dealing with the complaints of the professors and teaching staff. Since the work order system isn't very well thought out, it often becomes redundant and unnecessary. The most enjoyable part of the job is the routine tasks and knowing what is expected each day.
In spite of positives, cannot recommend because of bureaucracy and under-qualified supervisory personnel.
Director, Rutgers Food Innovation Center (Former Employee) – Bridgeton NJ – June 23, 2014
Great opportunity to operate at the leading edge of food technology and innovation. Eclectic clients, processes, categories. Great exposure to the university's faculty with a wealth of scientific insights. Smart and motivated co-workers. Strong learning environment. Work that is both financially and sociologically significant to clients. Extremely bureaucratic. Some senior supervisors are obstacles in their need for power and cluelessness about business best practices and how to lead, resulting in an otherwise unnecessary environment of mixed signals, survival tactics, and CYA.
rewarding contribution to the advancement of the food industry
Clinical Research Assistant (Former Employee) – New Brunswick, NJ – November 5, 2015
A typical day was spent completing tasks assigned by my supervisor who was very helpful with difficulties. I learned how to transcribe videos and about clinical psychology disorders such as schizophrenia. The hardest part of the job was the transcription with poor video quality.

Technical Support Representative (Former Employee) – New Brunswick, NJ – June 9, 2015
Usually assisting the head of the IT department, Overseeing computer labs throughout the building, and providing technical support to all staff members. Management was great.

PROJECT COORDINATOR (Current Employee) – New Brunswick – August 24, 2014
Very good place to come and coast - particularly as an administrator. The idea of managing towards goals or towards completing a task is laughable here. There's so much confusion that if you make a mistake it can easily be blamed on the next guy. The best thing to do here is get people to like you.
great benefits and you don't have to work hard
you won't get paid well unless you're faculty. don't look for annual increases. better for older, ready to retire or those almost ready to 'kick the bucket'.....
Assist phD students in administrating survey's to undergrad students.
Research Assistant (Current Employee) – Newark, NJ – October 25, 2015

Division of Student Affairs (Current Employee) – New Brunswick, NJ – September 24, 2015
Always changing always challenging with many opportunities to make a difference in the lives of many. You make the choice to live up to the opportunities or not. Great place to work if you have the chops to be committed to change.
MAJOR GIFTS DEVELOPMENT OFFICER (Current Employee) – Piscataway, NJ – March 4, 2015
Rutgers is an interesting place to work. Provides employees with a work life balance. Job requirements differ based on your department and manager. The responsibilities and culture vary greatly from department to department.
Working at Rutgers was a rewarding experience. The job afforded me the opportunity to work with college students. This was my first experience working in an academic library. I found the students interesting and motivated. I was treated very well by management.
interesting patrons, excellent working conditions, friendly co-workers
