    Current Employee - Graduate Research Assistant in Boulder, CO

    I have been working at JILA full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Collaborative atmosphere, exceptional quality of science, challenging but many resources available to help (other students, professors, post-docs, shop staff)

    Cons

    Some effort should be given to finding the group that is a good fit for your working style and personality - as there is a fairly large range available.
