"I worked as a research assistant to develop a website for their department of communication and disorders. They were really helpful to me and provided me with every resource I asked for and gave me the flexibility of time to work on my time and my pace. They had very specific requirement and they pushed me to my limit to achieve those requirements and at the end I feel that I learned a lot by pushing myself to the limit."

"Northwestern University is certainly a well known and respected institution. Being a university, business can be quite confusing at times due to the environment which is quite eclectic. I believe a lack of cohesive enterprise goal making can cause confusion and lack of career opportunities for non-faculty personnel."

"I am working as a postdoc and developer in one spin-off. Which means half of the standard salary with respect to a standard start-up, with the same stress, and the bureaucracy of the academia. Plus, my employer has no shame to exploit J1/H1 slavery. We are constantly blackmailed to work more than 70 hrs per week under the menace of not having our visa renewed. Stay away."
