    Former Employee - Research Assistant in Clemson, SC

    I worked at Clemson University part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The hours are very flexible, you can complete research more or less at your own pace provided you are cleared to operate all the instruments you need solo. Independence is generally afforded and taking the initiate to start projects and collaborate is rewarded.

    Cons

    The pay is not outstanding relative to peer institutions. If you aren't a self-starter it's easy to spend a lot of time doing nothing since there isn't much micromanaging. The city of Clemson is small and boring if you're used to city living.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be wise to make requirements more clear from the beginning and to make an effort to provide regular and helpful feedback along the way.

    Pros

    I worked as a summer research assistant back in 2013. People there were friendly and helpful, especially those students that I worked with.

    Cons

    However, professors could be devil sometimes since summer time is most productive time in their hearts, they would push you everyday.
