Working as a graduate assistant for professor allows you to have more opportunity to communicate with the professor. Graduate assistantship is a good choice for you to balance work and study.

DO NOT join the police department just to have your commission held, go somewhere else or you will be sorry......
Police Officer (Former Employee) –  Cleveland, OHOctober 19, 2018
If you are just graduating the academy and looking for your first commissioned job, PLEASE look elsewhere!!! If you are a retiree or an experienced officer, look elsewhere. Senior leadership is paranoid, manipulative , and easily threatened by anyone who has self confidence, experience or qualifications that may make them feel upstaged. Supervision encourages discourse and conflict amongst the ranks. No opportunity for advancement. No union protection, unfair mandate policies, insecure supervisors, and low pay.
Not worth it....
Pros
Lunch break
Cons
Toxic culture, poor leadership, low pay, no union

very good place to work with decent benefits but the location is the best.The location is in the inner city accessible from all sides of town public
Dental Assistant/Receptionist (Current Employee) –  Cleveland, OHOctober 17, 2018
The reason it is such a great place to work, is not the pay, but mainly because of the benefits, which top notch for the inner city. also the location is prime because all roads lead here, public transportation is plentiful and very close by. the location also has a lot of resturants nearby.
Pros
lots of free food
Cons
pay for parking

Communication Officer/Police Dispatcher
Police Dispatcher (Former Employee) –  Cleveland, OHSeptember 28, 2018
DO NOT, I REPEAT DO NOT work here as a communication officer!!!!!!! Management is horrible and unfair! Unfair scheduling, unfair mandate policy, favoritism, and very TOXIC work environment. But if you can handle a toxic manager and work environment, with working 50hrs plus weekly then go ahead but in my opinion its not worth the stress!
Pros
benefits
Cons
toxic environment, horrible management

As a student tutor, you will get paid minimum wage and able to share your knowledge with your peer. If you consider to make extra money, find actual job than tutoring.

Your experience depends upon the people you regualrly interact with
Postdoctoral fellow (Former Employee) –  Cleveland, OHAugust 22, 2018
There is absolutely no work-life balance. Postdocs are treated at best as cheap labor. There are no effective career development workshops or opportunities.

Embrace the quirk in academia
Director (Current Employee) –  Cleveland, OHJune 20, 2018
Case is a generally good place to work. The faculty are truly committed to their students and to advancing the reputation of the university. There is an entrepreneurial culture associated with the institution in part because each faculty member is expected to bring in grant opportunities to fund their interests. This makes it a dynamic place in which to work as fascinating new opportunities arise on a regular basis. The place is rife with creative people. However, there can be a lack of alignment of interests which leads to politicking and gross inefficiencies.
