Overwork, Underpaid

Graduate Research Assistant (Current Employee) Amherst Center, MA

Pros- Academia
- If you have a car, university is 2-3 hours from New York City and Boston

ConsIt depends on your adviser/supervisor for a graduate research assistant. I was overworked and underpaid as graduate student. I did not learn anything of value from my adviser, and I was not allowed to take classes because it takes time away from my work.

- Overworked (Contract 4 hrs, worked much more)
- Underpaid (Did not get paid more for working more)
- University is a middle of nowhere (for a person coming from an urban city)

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
