Team leader whom consistently meet rigid deadlines (Former Employee) – Pasadena, CA – October 20, 2018
non stop and a high volume job. They promote from within at up to a certain level which is normally mid management. Proper compensation is something you have to advocate for yourself. Management is inconsistent with their goals
Security Officer (Current Employee) – Pasadena, CA – April 9, 2018
Everyday is a new day its never the same. It can be a slow day or a busy day. Everyday I leaned a new code. Management is all about politics. Culture the school has everything. Coworkers being a team. Meeting new people from different countries.
uniforms are payed
I don't take my 2 minute brakes and we have to clock out for our 30 minute lunch.
Manager (Former Employee) – Pasadena, CA – April 4, 2018
The work place culture is in transition for staff. Due to many employees on leave, there is a current work shortage and much work to be done causing hard work and many long days. The benefits are excellent! The front-line employees are great and loyal. There are many, many changes in management right now.
Data Processing Analyst (Former Employee) – Pasadena, CA – February 23, 2018
A very stimulating to work with the personnel of CalTech. My superiors were very easy to work with and with my colleagues. Worked directly with department heads to gather information for a new application, modify existing applications.
Cafeteria on campus, great people to work with etc.
Where you met the best brains in a relaxed setting
Faculty Member (Former Employee) – Pasadena, CA – February 7, 2018
This is a place you go without regret on your resume. Of course you are who you are but a good bullet point will make your resume shine. Be there and done that, see the best brain on top, you will know most others are below the mountain top, you see all the view.
create your own stuffs with a proposal and just do it
Postdoctoral Scholar (Former Employee) – Pasadena, CA – January 17, 2018
Small campus, with lots of opportunities for relaxed chat with researchers from other departments. The benefit packages are good, child care can be a headache unless you're faculty, the cafeteria is good, and the Ath is super fancy. The students are well prepared and motivated, which makes for rewarding and interesting experiences teaching.
cutting edge research facilities and top researchers
some labs have a very competitive (unhealthy) culture, get to know the people before hand
Research Technician (Former Employee) – Pasadena, CA – January 13, 2018
If you end up in a great lab with great people you will love the job even with the low pay. My lab was good at first but then it changed a lot. My lab's dynamics were changing in a way that pushed me towards work I had no interest in. The work I did enjoy became minimal. Thankfully this was a temporary job.
Senior Inspector/Deputy Fire Marshal (Current Employee) – Pasadena, CA – January 2, 2018
I appreciate this job because everyone shares the same vision and is dedicated to the mission. This truly creates a family environment where everybody is there for each other. I like the autonomy I have because my bosses allow me to innovate. I also love the people I work with. I like that I have a great degree of control and freedom within my job. I work full-time, both in and out-of-office, and my boss trusts me to produce high quality work and results. I work hard to maintain that level of trust, which keeps me engaged and excited. I like the autonomy I have because my bosses allow me to innovate. The variability of my job is what gets me up in the morning. I know I provide a professional service to the institute and contractors and I am able to contribute my experience and skills
