It will be different for other PIs but our PI micromanaged the lab hurting productivity, increasing stress, and making it a hard environment to work in.

Excellent study to have worked on.
Field Interviewer (Former Employee), Madison, WIMarch 30, 2013
Pros: set your own schedule.
Cons: contract position.
Enjoyed working out of my home, setting my own schedule, being able to work nights and weekends if I wanted to, interviewing different people every day, driving to new areas of Wisconsin, & staying over night in a motel.

Had two week's of initial training in Madison which really equipped us to hit the ground running. Additional training was also provided – more... in Madison as well as through webinars. Would definitely work on the WLS in the future or any other studies the university has to offer. – less

Productive workplace with a new approach to lecturing.
Teaching Assistant (Former Employee), Wendt Library, Madison, WIMarch 30, 2013
Pros: great management, flexible hours.
Cons: occasional long hours.
A typical day involved making sure that in-class exercises were properly posted at the class website before class started. The class period was 2 hours long and was more of a problem-solving session instead of a straight lecture. The students were to watch short video lectures and turn in exercises at the end of the class period, which I would then – more... grade. I also held office hours in the late afternoon. The hardest part of the job was to generate in-class exercises that were both instructive and interesting. Overall, I really enjoyed the job, there were days that had very long hours, but the manager was phenomenal. I really enjoyed working with others, helping the students really understand the material, and watching them excel at the subject I was helping them learn. – less

Productive and enjoyable workplace
Graduate Research Assistant (Former Employee), Madison, WIFebruary 5, 2013
Pros: close to the city and recreational areas, good workplace, good benefits
Cons: very cold winters, work on weekends
Productive workplace. A typical day consisted of running experiments and sharing thoughts with co-workers or doing some background research on the work. The workplace is conducive to productivity and the close city life as well as the recreation by the water creates a relaxing atmosphere. Work on weekends and late nights is one of the hardest parts – more... of the job but its balanced by the flexible schedule. As a student and employee you take advantage of the the clinics and transportation services offered in town. – less
