Mostly dealing with the Laboratory classes of undergrad chemistry students. Helping them with their experiments and instrument handling (FTIR and GC).

Laboratory Technician, Vitreous State Laboratory (Former Employee), Washington, DCNovember 26, 2013
I'd like work at the CUA, hope some day I can back to CUA.
I was analysising chemical sample using all kinds of chemical instruments, e.g. DCP, ICP, IC.
An effective operation and cooperation plays a key role in effective work

A typical day at work
Preparation of DCP equipment, sample test operation, experiment result report

What you learned
Cooperation among those involved in lab management, experiment operation,

Your co-workers
Cooperative and encouraging, friendly and dutiful, diversified national and ethnic background

The hardest part of the job

Language is always the weak point due to none-native English speaker

The most enjoyable part of the job

Target goals are achieved due to hard and effective working and smooth cooperation

Low-pay but generous benefits.
Employee (Former Employee), Washington, DCJuly 26, 2013
Pros: good life-work balance.
Cons: in my opinion, there is a lack of strategic approach to the financial crisis.
Management is listens to "grapevine" talk among staff.

People are generally nice and supervisors are very considerate. But there are a lot of politics in the final decision-making of staff and policy.

Pros: Staff get many holiday breaks, half-day summer Friday and generous vacation and sick leave benefits. Higher Education benefits for you and your family a big plus for those with college-age children.

Con: The numerous lay-offs have caused tremendous morale break-down among the staff.

Administrative Assistant II (Former Employee), Washington, DCJune 17, 2012
Pros: time off, work life balance, job security
Cons: low pay
Catholic University has generally lower salaries than the market; however, the time off is excellent and you can generally keep work life balance. The school has strong values that can be felt and evidenced across the organization (in terms of religion); however, some of the staff feel oppressed because opportunities to advance are few and far between and administration is frequently given more of a share of pay increases than those who support the organization.
