    Former Contractor - Research Programmer

    I worked at Florida State University as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to work, with VERY flexible hours. Worked directly underneath my boss under contract from a government agency and the pay was pretty standard for a college job. Great experience and great boss! Worked in the Oceanography and Atmospheric Sciences Department for a specific faculty member, so YMMV depending on the nature of the job, which dept you work with, and your direct boss.

    Cons

    Pay could have been higher, but other than that it was a great experience.
