Fine

Graduate Research Assistant (Current Employee)
Boston, MA

ProsSalary was livable in Boston. Healthcare was provided with the BU clinic as the "primary care".
This was part of a PhD program, so the "work" was part of my own research. Very little pressure, as long as I was making good progress.

ConsBureaucracy was more inefficient than other universities I've been a member of, but it works.
