    Pros

    Good place for students to find jobs with the low amount of competition. They work with your class schedule. Always have opportunities for work.

    Cons

    Located in the middle of no where. Small community, very difficult to find things to do. Social life will be difficult to develop here.

    Pros

    Working for UC Merced allows me to earn my PhD, which will provide a secure future for myself and family.

    Cons

    Working as a Teaching Assistant, while being a graduate students, prevents me from having a good family life, and only allows for an academic social life.

    Advice to Management

    Don't waste hundreds of dollars on biodegradable chairs that fall apart in a few years. Put that money into funding for graduate students, and buy some chares at a quarter the cost that will last thirsty plus years.
