Pros

Very flexible hours and high autonomy in deciding what to do. Interesting topic with a great deal of learning taking place.

Cons

Low pay with very limited value to resume unless you are gearing towards an advanced degree. Really, just work for the experience and interaction with the faculty (and the pay, of course).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Nothing much. Didn't get to interact with the senior leadership at the university. Faculty wise, I think it depends on your luck... personality varies

Doesn't Recommend
