    Current Employee - Research Assistant in Princeton, NJ
    Current Employee - Research Assistant in Princeton, NJ

    I have been working at Princeton University full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Full funding, ability to choose an advisor, high generals pass rate. Very good choice if you are looking for a grad school. Obviously it depends on your advisor, but people generally have a very good experience and are happy with their hours and schedule.

    Cons

    Housing can be limited which is frustrating. Area isn't spectacular for students. Pay increases don't quite keep up with rent/insurance increases, especially if you live with a spouse.
