Great place to learn
Research Assistant (Current Employee), Worcester, MASeptember 29, 2014
Pros: free environment
A typical day at work is doing research or reading references in the lab. After mathematical derivations, we can do numerical simulations base on R or Python to verify your intuition or idea. The environment is free and every one in the lab is self-paced and self-motivating. The hardest part is to explore the working principles and natures behind the – more... math equations or the analysis results. And for me, this is also the most enjoyable of the job at the same time. – less

help desk is a nightmare to work at
HELPDESK ANALYST (Former Employee), Worcester, MAMay 21, 2014
Pros: student staff are great
Cons: management has no knowledge of tech besides buzz words most staff know almost nothing.
The help desk is a horrible place for any male employee to work unless your flamboyant . Sad to say management acts up front like it is great but then beats you down once you start.

I like this college
Research Assistant (Former Employee), Worcester, MAMarch 14, 2013
I work from 9AM to 5PM every work day (Mon-Fri).
I took a lot of engineering courses, and learned to think in engineer's way.
The management of WPI is fine.
My coworkers are good.
The hardest part of the job is facing to the screen too long which is not good for eyes.
I enjoy doing programing work.

An excellent school, an excellent opportunity
Research Assistant (Current Employee), Worcester, MAJune 25, 2012
Pros: supportive environment, teamwork, fosters originality and creativity
Cons: it is quite clearly an academic institution.
Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) is an excellent school for a motivated individual who would like to develop an education in creating useful technology. With a strong focus on entrepreneurial spirit, potential students will almost always be able to find a faculty backer for a project they are passionate about it. At WPI, you find the rare situation – more... where hard work, intelligence and skill are rewarded with the support they deserve rather than a largely political game. – less
