I have been working at University of Toronto as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

- Hands on exposure to R&D
- Surrounded by dedicated Master's and PhD candidates who are very bright and dedicated
- Possibility to write research papers for technical/science journals
- Not a lot of stress

Cons

- Low pay
- Can get caught up doing menial jobs sometimes
- The overall experience strongly influenced by the Professor heading the research lab (Choose the Professor wisely)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Not all undergraduate research assistants are cheap labor, some of them have great ideas (again, this varies from Prof. to Prof. Some value undergrads a lot, some are opposite)
