Research Associate, Biotechnology in Columbus:
Interesting work. Grossly under paid for the 60 hour work week. Very stressful. I bring home 2800 a month for basically running a lab my boss never shows up to. My lab the post docs and students work 5 hours a day, while I am saddled with all the responsibility. Pay increases are rare, though upper management with Wexner receive them. 2 % raise at the most. Lot of paperwork and stress to deal with. But OSU is really the only job in Columbus OH .
