Micromanagement
Program Support Specialist (Former Employee) –  Newark, NJFebruary 22, 2016
Working for Rutgers in general is really great. Benefits and salary is very competitive. However, the new leadership in the Graduate medical education department make it very difficult for employee to love their job. Other people are getting all the credits for the work that you did and get often paid out of title pay for work they didn't do.

Good Place to Do Research
Project Designer (Former Employee) –  NJFebruary 10, 2016
It's the largest university in the New Jersey, and too much branches mean that there'll be not so many top 10 majors.
The lab facilities are much better than my bachelor university.
