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!

    I have been working at University of Houston

    Pros

    It has multicultural diversity, there are many student organizations. There is really not much pros I can think about other than this.

    Cons

    I am very dissatisfied with the general ambiance of the University. It has been a construction zone for the last 2 years. Not enough budget for departments, assistants dont get paid well enough to maintain decent life standards. Not enough research opportunities for social science students. Very nice physicians at the health center but no specialty doctors are present.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    rather than allocating all the budget to construction, stadium etc. , they need to consider the well being of students and assistants.
