    Pros

    - A great balance of casual and professional
    - Works around class schedules. You're a student first and they respect that.
    - They want you to succeed at your job, so they help you whenever they can.

    Cons

    I've worked here for a year now, and I still can't think of any cons. Even having to wake up at 5 am isn't that bad because I love this job.

    Pros

    The people are great and you are given many opportunities to learn and participate in numerous projects. There was also many opportunities to write and contribute to publications.

    I have been working at Arizona State University full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Tempe is a great area to be at for the compensation you get. Also good research opportunities and nice campus to work at and great people.

    Cons

    You have to pay $500 approx every semester (about $300 in summer) to the school even after RA benefits which is makes it pretty hard to make a decent living. Also health insurance is pretty bad. You have to pay copay even to see a doc on campus. School pharmacy no longer exists. If your dept is on tempe campus and you have to take a class in phoenix campus, you need to pay a ton of money which doesn't make sense. I know of cases where even different universities create affiliations to allow students to take classes for free.
