Suggestions for improvement

  • better pay, overtime offered to hourly employees

What I like about the company

Amazing opportunities for independent work and growth

What I dislike about the company

Employees are only paid for 40hrs/week, and it is in our contracts that overtime is voluntary and will not be compensated. However the structure of the projects here take many more than 40hrs/week (usually a bare minimum of 50-60) and some employees work much more than that to get ahead. Overall the pay is poor, but consistent with other academic research institutions
