    I have been working at UC Davis part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    My adviser was really helpful and taught me all that I needed to know. I was able to fit my hours around my life, as long as I got what I needed done.

    Cons

    Compensation and benefits were extremely low, if not nonexistent. I had to follow research run by adviser, and was not able to come up with my own research.
