Current Employee - Graduate Research Assistant in Logan, UT
Current Employee - Graduate Research Assistant in Logan, UT

I have been working at Utah State University full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Work schedule can be flexible depending on your advisor and deadlines. I have heard PhD students graduate with few publications. So that means their schedule is probably pretty loose. Cost of living is cheap so that's always a plus.

Cons

can be hectic sometimes and stressfull. My advisor is still working for his tenure so we keep pushing out papers. Last year (2012) I had submitted 6-10 papers to different conferences. Also, winter sometimes can be very bad.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be sure graduate students are treated well and have and have an avenue to air out their concerns.
