Mentally stimulating
Technical Associate (Current Employee), Rochester, NYMay 7, 2014
Pros: great intellectually stimulating environment
Cons: instability of funding for research
A typical day at work for me begins with administrative duties... email, accounts payable etc. followed by experimental design and setup. Much of my experimental time includes down time for incubations which I use to train and supervise lab staff including students. The hardest part of my job is to continue to stay on top of new publications to stay – more... current with cutting edge research. The most enjoyable part of my job is knowing that I play a role in helping to find new treatments for leukemia. – less

Enjoyed what I was doing to report on Primary Care data
SYSTEMS ANALYST/PROGRAMMER (Former Employee), Rochester, NYApril 28, 2014
Pros: type of work lent itself to my analytical skills.
Cons: few people knew or understood what role i actually served
Once I was accustomed to the demands of the job I was assigned, I took to it well. I was able to track data for various primary care doctors working for the University of Rochester and was even able to resolve problems with data reported ij the months prior to my working at the site. However, when the manager for whom I worked decided to leave her position, – more... my position was also eliminated. It was deemed unnecessary and I had no champion on whom to fall back. – less

Good place to work
Bed Assignment Officer (Former Employee), Rochester, NYApril 23, 2014
Good work atmosphere. At times was a high pressure environment due to having patients needing to be placed in urgent and emergent situations. Management was good about "hitting the release valve" because the truly understood that pressure and were quick to reward, compliment and acknowledge that and show appreciation. Benefits were good and there was – more... always room for advancement with no restrictions placed upon a person except for having the correct qualifications for a particular job. – less

Too Large
Senior Research Associate (Former Employee), Rochester, NYApril 22, 2014
Cons: location in a hospital. distance between labs.
The lab setting was very inefficient. The distance from lab to animals was far, with little space to hold all that was needed. So everything needed to be carted through the hospital daily. The lab was in the hospital, it was a research lab not a lab which required patient samples, so we were a bit out of place and often felt overtaken by the hospital.
