I worked at Princeton University full-time (less than an year)

Pros

The campus is beautiful, and all the staff and fellow researchers are extremely helpful, just generally nice people.

Cons

The pay in my position was pretty low, but I suppose that's understandable considering I was a rising sophomore at the time of employment.

    Current Employee - Graduate Student in Princeton, NJ

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

    Pros

    - Finally, you get paid to be a student rather than accumulating debt. And with free health care, and optional (but affordable) vision and dental
    - The graduate school organizes events for the grad student population
    - I've had good experience with advisors, but that will vary depending on whom you're with. ASK PEOPLE IN THE LAB!!! It's important.
    - Good running nearby (towpath along the canal) and nice countryside to bike through just a few miles out of town.

    Cons

    - Very difficult to meet people outside the grad student bubble
    - Housing office is terrible, but you only have to deal with them a few times
    - Little to do off campus unless you go far afield.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Academia in general needs more career advice for people pursuing non-postdoc jobs. If that's the path most people take, why is it considered an "alternative" career path?
