I have been working at McGill University full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

McGill will look good on the diploma. It is a world leader in many fields and has many well-known researchers, which will definitely help with getting a post grad school job.

Cons

Salary is basically a slave wage and we're expected to work all the time. Graduate school is absurd like that and we have no recourse. It's an endless cycle where professors think they own us because they're paying us pennies.
