    I worked at IIT Kanpur full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Less supervision, possibilities of publishing research papers in renowned journals, more time to explore your interests

    Many research projects are written just for the sake of minting money out of government organisations which tends to make you less serious about research.

    Doesn't Recommend
