    Pros

    The great thing about working here is that your education is more important that whatever role you have as a student worker. Unlike the "real world" these jobs go out of their way to make sure you have enough time to take part in important events/conferences/exams/study sessions whatever you need.

    Cons

    The pay is nothing glamorous but it sure beats most other part time jobs while in school

    Pros

    School has promoted renewable and alternative energies and that matches my interest. Interdisciplinary research center brings different expertise to deal with environmental problem (my case).

    Cons

    Not much to discuss since I'm a grad student. Work full time as the de-factor.
