    Current Employee - Research Assistant in Chicago, IL

    Pros

    You get a chance to work with some brilliant professors and co-workers. The perfect job for people considering graduate school in psychology. A job like this lets you work with grad students and see what life will be like if you choose to do a PhD program. Hours are relaxing and the work isn't stressful.

    Cons

    You can get better pay at other jobs. There really is room is grow. The job is meant to be for people in between undergrad and grad school.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Diverse opportunities
    Great network
    Research assistant positions are easy to find
    Student employment website is easy to navigate
    No payroll issues

    Cons

    Pay scale for students is standardized, so there is little room for negotiation.
    It is much easier to get jobs in certain departments than others, but this is expected of any University.
    If you are not interested in research or in administrative tasks, finding a job may be difficult.
