      Undergraduate research for MISL (molecular information systems lab) in the CSE department

      Nov 22, 2021 - Undergraduate Research Assistant in Seattle, WA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      I absolutely love my job at MISL. They are exceptional, always encouraging me to pursue my passions, then supporting me in completing my goals. My manager has been so understanding and positive whenever I have made mistakes. The work environment carries this positivity. All the faculty are very helpful and understanding when starting new research projects that I have little knowledge about. I have made very good friends in my coworkers. The lab itself is beautifully clean and well organized. Beautiful views of ocean and lots of private working rooms. MISL ignited my passion for STEM and helped me find focus in my studies. Whatever I do in my career post undergrad, I will owe mostly to MISL. I cannot say enough good things.

      Cons

      I like my job so much that I find it hard to prioritize school. The first few months of training were quite challenging.
