    Pros

    Intellectual community, great benefits via union, wonderful students, was able to take one course each semester for free. Long Island RailRoad stop right on campus.

    Cons

    Entry-level student service salaries are too low for the cost of living on Long Island. Not a lot of housing available in the area for young professionals who relocate for job. Not a lot of room for advancement - people tend to get jobs and stay in them.

    Pros

    Excellent working experience. Nice natural environment around the SBU campus.

    Cons

    The salary is not decent compared to other research institutions as it is under a state university setting.

    Advice to Management

    If employer-sponsored permanent visa could be provided for the research associate position, it would attract more outstanding researchers to work for SBU.
