It's work in a research lab...
Research Assistant (Current Employee), Nashville, TNFebruary 21, 2014
Pros: free pizza fairly often
Cons: research is hard
Graduate labs vary wildly in culture.
However, you will always learn a lot, not get paid well, and be frustrated. You may also get to spend lots of time learning about something that you really like - that can be rewarding. In fact, that's a necessary condition for starting graduate school - I think you need to love what you are doing.

Software Development (Current Employee), Nashville, TNJanuary 14, 2014
Pros: creative freedom and casual, free thinking work environment.
Cons: the politics on the medical center side is a hinderance to progress.
In the department that I work in accepts only excellence as a standard. Everyone here is devoted to their jobs. You are expected to work on your own with creative freedom, but the expectations are high. I am ever learning new technologies, methodologies, etc and I am challenged every day.

Managed 2 units with over 100 FTE on two different floors.
Manager Patient Care Services (Former Employee), Nashville, TNDecember 18, 2013
Developed Excel budget sheet to allow me to either lower or raise the amounts Administration would request that would carry over to multiple sheets in the matter of just a few minutes. Things always changing for the betterment of nursing care. Very compartmentalized. Loved my Director-very supportive and always willing to assist or just listen. Hardest – more... part of the job was staying out of the politics that is at every institution. Enjoyable part-working side by side with the staff so they could see that I was capable of doing what they did. Also involved staff in budget development. – less

Program Coordinator, Vanderbilt Medical Alumni Affairs
Program Coordinator (Current Employee), Nashville, TNDecember 10, 2013
Pros: healthcare
Cons: parking
Over the past four years, I have gained a great deal of work experience through office management and event coordination with Vanderbilt medical alumni. I have improved in people skills, computer skills, and learned to juggle several tasks at once. I am extremely organized, and I am a fast learner. I take initiative on any assignment, and I am very – more... good at managing my time and work. I get along very well with my coworkers - I am a people person, and I love being apart of a team. I experienced some difficulty when I was hastily promoted to a higher position with little training, but I succeeded in little to no time. The most enjoyable part of my job is working with my coworkers. We work hard and make a great team. – less

ACCESS/EXIT SPECIALIST (Former Employee), Nashville, TNDecember 8, 2013
Pros: amazing benefits, amazing team, professionalism, opportunities for advancement, convienience, training
Cons: disconnected from management (such a big company), parking.
Best place I have ever worked! Awesome culture of smart folks working for the patient's best interest and sharing knowledge with each other. I learned so much working here-how to work well with a team, how to deal with crisis situations effectively, how to supervise others and how to appreciate a hard day's work. Great co-workers for the most part (there – more... are always a few...) and management was fair and competent. Most enjoyable part was the constant opportunity to learn something new. Hardest part was the nature of the job-you deal with sick people all day! Loved being a part of the Vandy family. I left to take an opportunity to live overseas with family. I was in my twenties...what can I say...but I am trying to get back in their good graces :) – less
