Dedicated co-workers with terrible jokes
Research assistant (Former Employee) – Sydney, NSW – 27 June 2015
Scientists and researchers deal in projects that are hard for the majority of the population to understand. As such, they think differently creating a division between scientists and the individual.
This separation can easily be seen in the form with jokes as a number of jokes researchers make are context based e.g what do you call a benzene ring with irons replacing the carbons... a ferrous wheel.
while its fun poking at their distinct sense of humor, these people are dedicated to a fault. This caused me to work from 8am - 6pm on a regular basis however, it was a never a dull moment as i was always learning and contributing to the experiments. It was enjoyable, with work varying from lab work to report writing and the co-workers were always there to explain a concept.
Scientific procedures are very detailed and a slight mistake ( wrong sample dilution) can alter the results causing a void experiment. Initially, i made a number of mistakes due to my lack of attention but as i progressed and learned from experiment to experiment, certain procedures and techniques were remembered. By the end of it, procedures can be easily conducted based off muscle memory.
Constantly learning, friendly enviroment, variety of work activities
Little room for error
