It was fine.

Graduate Research Assistant (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA

ProsThe pros are that you get to work on interesting projects and take tuition waived classes that lead to an advanced degree.

ConsThe cons are that the pay is extremely low and the work is done very inefficiently, resulting in very little work getting done per hour spent working.

Advice to Senior ManagementEither increase funding for research assistants or accept fewer students. Randomly running out of funding for a student in the middle of his/her degree is not acceptable.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
