The positions I held while at the University were fast paced and exciting.
Secretary II (Former Employee), School of Engineering - Associate Dean's officeMarch 31, 2014
Pros: strengthened my knowledge of aids, as well as got me to visit many areas in the state that i may not have seen otherwise.
Cons: long days and little sleep often occurred when we traveled.
While employed with the PA AIDS Education I was part of a team who were grant funded. We were educating the public about AIDS. I was typing the presentation, copying and putting binders together for the participants. We scheduled the presenters, as well as made their travel arrangements. We accepted payment and balanced as necessary. We traveled to – more... the site and ensured that the presentation was fine tuned. We pre-arranged lunch and snacks for the participants and presenters. We allowed the participants to provide us feedback as well. – less

The University of Pittsburgh
Case Manager, Social Work Intern (Current Employee), Pittsburgh, PAMarch 23, 2014
Pros: opportunities for growth
Cons: large institution, complicated hierarchy
I would recommend the University of Pittsburgh as an employer. As a large institution there are numerous opportunities for growth and development. Unfortunately, as with any job, work life balance is questionable depending on your supervisor, however, overall, I believe that many supervisors understand the importance of this issue and encourage it.

Student worker position that offered opportunities, networking, and balance of school and work
Student Worker - School of Medicine (Former Employee), Pittsburgh, PAMarch 18, 2014
Pros: free food throughout the week, ability to set own hours.
Working as a student worker allowed me to complete my schoolwork, while also maintaining a job that understood that school was to be the priority. Student worker positions often allowed me to set me own hours according to when I was able to work, and around my classes. A typical day involved administrative duties as they were assigned to me by others – more... in administration, deliveries around the campus, maintenance of the office cleanliness, preparing materials for lectures by the physicians and fellows, etc. – less

Great Benefits and Atmosphere
Research Specialist (III) (Current Employee), Pittsburgh, PAMarch 17, 2014
Pros: health insurance, bus pas, discounts, tuition remission
I love working for the University. I love being in Oakland, and enjoy working with like-minded individuals. The benefits are great, to me. I've honed some skills that I already had, and learned new ones. The only downside is job security, in a time when funding for research is scant, there are no guarantees.

Research Associate III
Research Specialist (Former Employee), Pittsburgh PAMarch 12, 2014
The University of Pittsburgh underpays it research staff. The only thing I can say as my PI was a great person to work for. There is no movement in salary other than a 2% raise once a year, but plan on making what your hired at until the day you leave. Performing high level biochemical and biomedical experiments for 34,500/year is a joke. Not only performing – more... them, writing the protocols for these experiments, data analysis, and trouble shooting them. – less
