Lab Manager/Research Assistant (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – August 2, 2017
I have flexible work-hour, creative environment and surrounded by knowledgable colleagues. I have chance to collaborate with different groups within university and other national and international institutions. Underpaid due to school policy.
Operations Supervisor/Administrative Coordinator (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – December 3, 2017
My typical day at work is spending mostly between 2-4 hours checking and responding to incoming emails. I am very dedicate and passionate about my job and what I do. The hardest part of my job is trying to work with team members who have a different perspective which could be very stressful.
Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – November 5, 2017
I was a volunteer at the Physical Therapy Department for a research project that was conducted. Everything was performed when I was a student. All staff and research equipment was readily available and easy to use.
Maintenance Staff II (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – October 31, 2017
The work environment is demanding with very little reward, and your job is was threatened at any time by temp workers. You couldn't enjoy what you di nor could you put any effort behind your effort. Feeling unappreciated and soon kicked to the unemployed sect of life is no fun on your mind.
Nice work environment, meet different people of all ethic backgrounds
Student Ambassador/Office Support Assistant (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – June 22, 2017
The admissions office at University of the Sciences provided me with the chance to tell my positive university experience to incoming students and their families. The work was fun and time manageable. The rest of the workers were very friendly. The staff always made the environment fun and light hearted, and had us come up with new ideas to promote the schools and recruit more workers.
Graduate Assistant (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – June 8, 2017
I enjoyed working as a Graduate Assistant. Working as a GA provided me with strong skill sets as well as a rewarding experience. The working environment was very welcoming and the everyone was easy to get along with.
Coordinator (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – March 25, 2017
I have worked at the university for more than a decade, always hoping that the environment would change and get better. Compensation has stayed steady, health insurance has gone through the roof, and the only perk of the company is Friday's off during the summer. The administration keeps touting their "transparency" but the university is nothing but. We've gone through more HR heads and presidents in the last 5 years than a normal university would go through in 15 years. With the changing higher education climate I would be shocked if the university lasted. If they don't change, lower tuition, and treat their employees like they're valued, they will tank.
Research Technician (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – December 7, 2016
In my typical day I am managing multiple projects, undergraduate and graduate students and ordering lab supplies. I am working side by side with different people on projects. I collaborate with different fields and learn more each day. I really enjoy the aspect that I am always learning something new in my position.
a modern university dedicated to healthcare training and research
Peer Tutor (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – August 1, 2016
A very specialized university focused on training the healthcare professionals of tomorrow. Heavily focused on pharmacy training and an excellent place to receive an education in healthcare and all its caveats.
Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – February 27, 2015
I worked as a teaching assistant during my Ph.D program at USciences. I would assist professors in hosting undergraduate laboratory seminars. This improved both my professional communication skills and my overall knowledge of the organic chemistry field. The most enjoyable part of the job was sharpening my chemistry knowledge and interacting with students, but there were significant problems with obtaining my payments.
Close knit environment with very approachable peers
Graduate Student Instructor (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – December 14, 2014
This private institution provides a close-knit environment to learn and grow as a scientist, as well as, an individual. Instrumentation within departments is available for all groups to use free of charge. The work place is a positive competitive environment, where everyone is willing to help their peers succeed.
Staff (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – November 3, 2014
There is a lot of bad morale at the university due to many factors. Stagnant wages, shaky policies, and outdated technology. Many folks are very pleasant but the few who are not are very vocal and some are unfortunately influential. Students seem very overworked and payroll is very archaic (still completely paper based).
Fridays off in the summer; great 403b contribution
Apathetic attitude on campus, poor alumni involvement
