    Pros

    Meals paid for when on the road, worked closely with my boss(professor) who helped me to come up with and solve ideas pertaining to the research. A wonderful learning experience

    Cons

    Occasionally it was extremely labor intensive and could take a lot of time out of the week, and all of the weekend.

    Advice to Management

    The management was great but the biology department itself could use some updating as far as equipment and work space

    Pros

    Great job to do when also taking courses as a graduate student. Professors do really understand that you are wearing many hats as an instructor, student, and researcher.

    Cons

    Depending on your department you can get caught up in some of the drama which you might otherwise not expect in a professional setting.

    Pros

    Work is slow paced, can be scheduled around school. Jobs are very specialized and you will rarely deal with anything outside of your department. Job security is relatively high.

    Cons

    Hard to advance. Pay is basically fixed and there really aren't any raises. Change happens slowly or never. Politics play a huge role in everything. Budget cuts can mean the end of a career.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is key. Listen to the needs of others.
