Nice environment, but little room to advance.
Head Soils & Plants Technician (Current Employee) – New Brunswick, NJ – July 7, 2018
Rutgers has gone far above and beyond in terms of work/life balance, PTO, & much more. Perfect place for someone to get experience in a new field, for a working mother, or to wind down a career. You will learn every day, if you want to.
However, you are expected to fit in your pigeonhole for 20-30 years, and most people here do exactly that. Be absolutely certain your career goals match this expectation.
Since there are so many things Rutgers does, there is no "typical day at work". If you're interviewed, do lots of your own research on the department, and ask lots of questions at the interview! There are profound cultural differences between units.
Same as any government job
