RA needs more interests based research, not project based.

Current Employee - Research Assistant in Houston, TX

I have been working at University of Houston full-time for more than a year

Pros

I worked everyday, the main idea is to do the project, search the topics which might
derive to a paper. Which is good for students.

Cons

But it's boring, I thought that there's no life for our RA. I am so tired of this.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

more research related funding should be set for students themselves, not labs!

    For a PhD student I think the experience is pretty average

    Pros

    You get paid to learn and increase your human capital. The pay is enough to live on, though you struggle during certain months.

    The teaching is hit-or-miss. Some professors will give you a great deal of useful information. Some don't ever show up to class. Some do show up but you can't understand a word they are saying (or writing for that matter).

    Cons

    The pay isn't really indexed to inflation. We got lucky to see one increase in pay due to grad students protesting across the university. It is also the case that you get paid less in the summer which they won't tell you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employ people who care about teaching, not just those who care about research.
