    Workload increase. You need to handle multiple tasks at same time

    Payment is so so, since it is a public school and scholarship or the payment would be very high

    Fun, a lot of projects came our way with little time in between but it was worth it in the long run.

    I worked at Texas A&M

    Pros

    A lot of individual growth as well as learning how to work well in a team. Very helpful instructors throughout the entirety of each project.

    Cons

    A lot of instructors weren't well versed in the programs that were used for certain projects. A lot of "do your own research" mandates to get simple instruction for certain projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find instructors who know the ends and outs of each level of the pipeline. Will lead to better projects and better accolades for the program.

    Pros

    Friendly, research oriented environment, relatively cheap living cost, and you will see a city is supporting the school a lot.

    Cons

    One Cons is College station is middle of nowhere.
    If you have lived in a big town, it would be boring. Also, if you are not following college sports, it would not be easy to be socializing
