Company reviews
"Mitch made Purdue miserable for employees"
Former Employee
The Mitch cronies love working there. There is now an in crowd and an out crowd. Doing a good job does not matter. Joining the propaganda group will lead to advancement.

"Excellent Place"
Former EmployeeDirector
Great people, great place, and an overall campus that is serious about their education. Leadership has been great and the campus is constantly progressing.

"Expectations are very different depending on boss"
Current EmployeeGraduate Researcher
Most days are pretty hands-off and allow to do your work the way you want to. It's primarily about making progress in the work you are assigned and following up on anything specific your boss wants. Some bosses are much more strict with time off and scheduling but there can be a lot of flexibility depending on who you're working with.

"Easy, laid back job"
Current EmployeeStudent Representative
Easy desk job. Every once in a while a customer will come up with a difficult problem, but employees aren't expected to know how to fix every issue someone comes to the desk with. Most of the time is free time to do homework. Management is very nice and easy to work with. Doesn't pay that great, but most days it's practically passive income.
