Student Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Aurora, CO – May 19, 2014
What I love most about the University of Colorado Anschutz medical campus was that everyone cared so much about the research they did. It inspired me to be the best that I can. I learned many different laboratory techniques and the science behind it. More importantly, I learned how the results related to scientific concepts, which I found highly enjoyable.
Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – Boulder, CO – April 3, 2016
Do not go to graduate school here. They are a disorganized mess. My typical day was pure stress, trying to balance schooling with the requirements of being a TA. I loved working with students, and all of them are eager to learn. Some labs are disorganized or just flat-out aren't tested.

CU Concession Stand Worker (Former Employee) – Boulder, CO – March 8, 2016
This job was typically on weekends, working basketball, and football games. Typically it would be an all day event between set up and clean up and running the concession stand during the game. Normally you would prepare so much, during the game you either be a runner or a cashier, and afterwards you would help to take everything down.

In my brief time with the university and with the School of Public Affairs, I'm pleased with the support I've received as an adjunct faculty member.

The organization is very diverse so there's many departments to work for. Many of the departments are very fake and pompous in nature (even when they provide minimal organization support) which can be difficult to work for.
Human Resources Manager (Current Employee) – Boulder, CO – February 19, 2016
Every department is different. The culture depends on which department you are working in. Lack of work-life balance and flexibility is an issue if you are a working parent. Otherwise, a great place to work.

Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Boulder, CO – February 8, 2016
CU Boulder is as standard university with suitable facilities for those pursing academic research. The campus is pretty but the weather can very suddenly. One needs to be capable of handling the extremes in weather and driving in snow. Housing within the city is rather unsuitable and low quality for the price.
Undergraduate Research Assistant (Current Employee) – Boulder, CO – February 6, 2016
I work on unit testing in IDL (interactive data language) which is widely use in space sciences. We work on space missions and scientific tools that are necessary for data mining. We learn how to use various tools in an agile environment. We use automated tests using Jenkins and code review through Crucible. Jira is what we use as a ticking system for tasks. The management is friendly to approach for questions or help. The work is on your own but there is a supervisor that can be contacted for assistance. The most enjoyable part of the job is the flexible hours that students get. They can schedule their work around their class hours.
Student Grader Assistant (Current Employee) – Boulder, CO – January 8, 2016
Since I was a Course Grader of a subject that I had taken in the previous semester, I learnt several approaches that students took to write efficient codes for the same programming assignment. This definitely helped me strengthen my programming logics.
