Typical Grad Student Experience

Graduate Student (Former Employee)
Toronto, ON (Canada)

ProsAt least in my experience:
- As much hands on work as you want
- Work can be as independent or grouped as you like
- Work your own hours, as long as you get your work done
- Good funding, never wanted for more research materials (within reason)

Cons- Very dependent on your supervisor if you will have a good experience
- Sometimes hard to find courses that apply to your research
- Bureaucracy is always annoying, especially so at such a large university

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
