A typical day at work is interesting. Everyone basically knows what is expected of them and this allows for a productive work environment.
My job has improved on my communication skills and along side exposed me to some news ideas and work culture in the american environment, which seems to be more liberal yet productive.
The management functions with an open door policy, which encourages mutual respect and courteously welcomes opinions and suggestions from employees. collectively is highly emphasized.
My co-workers are a combination of graduate students like me and also full time university staff, they are pretty supportive, nice and yet focused. it is entirely a wonderful experience working with such amazing people. It feels as though i am part of one big family.
The hardest part of my job is getting accustomed to some of the new softwares that i have to work with. I am making remarkable progress so far with those.
I enjoy every part of my job and work environment. However, the most enjoyable part for me is the flexibility. Being a graduate student, flexibility is very important to me. I appreciate the fact that I am able to work for hours that fit perfectly into my class schedule, thereby creating a balance and giving me more study time.
