Graduate Researcher (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – October 22, 2018
The work hours are long and appreciation is low. The pressure from your advisor will create a toxic environment where it is extremely hard to thrive. Do not recommend it for anyone and also not one person I talked to about their job situation is happy!
I dont know how full time or higher up positions are paid but they really undervalue the low level workers they get
athlete (Former Employee) – field house – September 22, 2018
The investigators and graduate students were great. The bureaucracy was infuriating at times but I assume that's any college. The most disheartening part was that everyone is so focused on their own projects and their own things that a lot of people who help along the way are kind of taken advantage of.
