"The compensation was fixed and it was a low stress position. I worked with other students and there was no set objective that was left to us to decide. My team did pretty well to create a book selling and trading website that any student could use. I also had Facebook and other social site integration."

"I was in RPI's PhD program for a year before dropping out to pursue regular employment. It was a decent place to work and they compensated me very well with tuition and a stipend. I didn't have specific issues with RPI, just with graduate school in general. RPI is an excellent school with a lot of talented people."

Safety Representative

"little support from management"

What do you like about working at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute?

"I liked the excellent pay and benefits provided by the company."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"The pay is great, but the safety culture is horrible. If you are happy to make tons of money to keep your mouth shut then you will fit into this company very well."

What don't you like about working at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute?

"I hated the little support I received from from the management team. I had to find/write/develop my own safety program. Their safety manual copied from OSHA stating ...the employer will develop programs for... without stating what the programs were. I was completely on my own when it came to company policies and proceedures."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Quit celebrating the fact that you got away with only a $25,000 fine for killing five people within 13 months."
