Undergraduate Researcher (Former Employee), Austin, TXMarch 5, 2014
Pros: interesting work, flexible schedule

I had the option to work from home, so oftentimes I did that, but I would go into the office between classes and talk to the professor about the progress of the consolidation. Hardest part of the job was just learning Bash scripting from scratch which was something I wasn't very familiar with at the time. Most enjoyable part was working from home.
