Mainly it depends on the Professor under which one is doing his/her research.

Teaching Assistant (Current Employee)
Roorkee (India)

I have been working at IIT Roorkee full-time for more than a year

ProsGenerally no work at all, but during crisis (conferences, seminars, etc.) one has to a lot of work. Also one gets to learn a lot from the consultancy works. But its basically a sort of scholarship for personal research.

ConsOften students get no work at all, and hence no experience is gained.

Advice to Senior ManagementStudents should be assigned to some specific projects for exposure.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Harrowing there is nothing here to develop your skills , specially the clubs and societies are very impartial.

IDD Student (Current Employee)

I have been working at IIT Roorkee full-time for more than 3 years

ProsLoads of free time.
Very easy curriculum unless you dont want to study 4 days before the exams too.

ConsPlacements sucks.
No room for personal development.
Small city, not much to enjoys except nearby hill stations.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake the teachers more dedicated and the examinations more rigorous. Enthusiasm for engineering and technology is lacking on both sides.
