    Pros

    Student life, interpersonal interactions, and just a general easy going atmosphere within the campus. The work can be interesting at times but this was only occasionally. The pay is good for stupid simple jobs.

    Cons

    Not challenging work so you can get bored easily, not easy to grow within the company, and the pay isn't fantastic and almost impossible to get a raise.

    Advice to Management

    Allow better access for your research associates to get more acquainted with the department they're working for. You generally just feel like a lemming tossed in to do a specific set of instructions and then just rinse and repeat.

    Pros

    Access to university laboratories and research. Professors were very intelligent and caring for someone new to teaching.

    Cons

    The large university size implies larger size classrooms. My lab section consistently had 35-50 students for one to two TAs.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more than two TAs per section.

    Pros

    The hourly wage may not be as good as one may like. The people at the Business school are great and easy to talk to. The community is great and it's easy to talk to people when help is needed.

    Cons

    The pay could be a little higher. There is not really too many cons except for pay, it's really a nice place to work and the people understand how to be good team players.

    Pros

    Freedom to pursue research; faculty support. Many faculty are well-funded and there are a lot of resources available, e.g. robots, computers, etc. The health care plan is good, several options available.

    Cons

    Grad students aren't paid much; it's part of the gig. There's not much structure to the work environment, for some people this could be a negative. Projects are largely self-directed and progress is therefore self-determined.
