Busy in summer due to new academic session, otherwise, normal pace of work. Management could be better, need more training and exposure to understand the diversity of their workers from different cultural background. Good place to work, young minds to interact with, lively and fun environment, it's a university.
It depends on which professor you need to work with. Some of them are really picky and like to ask you to overtime without extra pay, but some of them are really nice, and you can be really good friends.
