    Pros

    The school is one of the top schools In Turkey. It was nice to be in a scientific environment and to be educated in English. Working environment was alright but it mainly depends on which laboratory you are working in or who you are working with.

    Cons

    There wasn't much freedom to experiment and learn the things in detail because of limited budget and scarcity of the materials needed for the experiments. My adviser was also a control freak, I didn't really feel free while I was working inthe lab.

    Advice to Management

    Be less bossy, find more projects to provide money to the students.


  11. great part time job opportunity.

    I worked at Middle East Technical University

    Pros

    Earning some pocket money when you are studying, also ability to access all the study materials any time you want.

    Cons

    There are not any cons exist for this job I think. Everything was almost perfect for a student who wants to work part-time.
