    I worked at Brown University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked as a research assistant for two years in multiple departments. I liked the work and the professors I worked with. Online payment system was easy.

    Cons

    I can't think of any cons. I imagine, though, that it depends on the professor you work for and the department.

    Advice to Management

    I like the online payment system -- easy to communicate and log hours. I was happy with my experience.

    Interview

About 8,700 undergraduate, graduate, and medical students have nearly 100 programs of study at their disposal, taught by more than 680 faculty members.
