Fast paced and cutting edge research
Postdoctoral Research Associate (Current Employee) –  Cambridge, MAAugust 28, 2017
Fast paced environment with highly intelligent colleagues. Management depends on lab and the culture is dictated by individual labs. Hardest part is low postdoc salary in an expensive area. They typically pay more than most institutes for starting postdoc.

Fun workplace with nice co-workers.
Laboratory Aide (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, MAMay 24, 2015
Cleaned pouring room. Made report of agar and solutions to make for the day based upon stock supply. Distributed previous day's media and solutions throughout floor. Prepared media and solutions based upon list of needed items. Prepared special requests of media and delivered to scientist's bench. Did odd chores as required.

I learned a lot about the scientific process or runnings of an biomedical institute based upon observations of scientists at work and associations with other technicians.
Pros
Nice light job for somebody looking to learn about science.
Cons
Can be boring at times.
