    I worked at University of Florida part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Pays well compared to other college job options. Super flexible hours generally. The projects can be good ways to get introduced to fields of work you are interested. Get to work on interesting projects!

    Cons

    Work can be very theoretical depending on the lab you're in. A lot of the labs do not have windows either which can make things kind of sad.

    Pros

    The professors of UF are knowledgeable and helpful. The live here in Gainesville is comfortable at an economically affordable cost.

    Cons

    You might feel a bit too hot and humid in summer. But finally the AC just helps.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be perfect if the paper work processing time could be shorten a bit more.
