    Pros

    Excellent resources for the fulfillment of degree requirements and research. Exciting research projects to work on and world class mentors. Decent health care.

    Cons

    Lacked the community feel at the department level, though that could be just the department I was in. The large size means that you are just one cog in the massive machine. No follow up post graduation. Little or no support for finding positions beyond the academy.

    Advice to Management

    Graduate students are more than simply TAs and laboratory workforce. Creating situations for us to be involved in teaching will facilitate better outcomes for job prospects given the changing landscape of higher education

    Pros

    Grad Student need to do either teaching or research. Compared with teaching assistant, research assistant is definitely better position.

    Cons

    I wouldn't consider it as a real job. It is half time for PHD graduate students. The income is really low and never increases for years.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the salary year by year. Also payment to every graduate student should be same.

    Pros

    Helps with tuition and if you are a grader for an online class you have a flexible schedule

    Cons

    Not all TA positions have equals work loads and the easier positions go to the international students.

    Advice to Management

    It would be appreciated if the would not discriminate and treat domestic and international students the same.

    Pros

    As a student worker, your schedule is very flexible, so you get plenty of opportunities to study and do homework even though you are working part time.

    Cons

    The compensation is not great, but since the work we do is fairly simple, I can't complain too much. We don't get much time off, since we are only given a handful of sick days, but other than that it is alright.

  9. You have to work hard and make good connections.
