    Pros

    I worked both as a teaching assistant and a graduate research assistant at UMD. I am very pleased with my experiences there and would recommend it to any other students seeking opportunities.

    Cons

    As a full-time graduate student, it could be hard to balance work, classes, research, and more. However, with good time management and work ethic, it can be accomplished.

    Pros

    As a Research assistant you have independence and freedom in the lab. Lots of opportunities for training and learning new skills

    Cons

    Finding good mentors can be challenging. Definitely need to seek help proactively to avoid getting left behind. Use your post-docs as resources!

    Advice to Management

    Take more active roles in mentoring your graduate students. We need your help to become successful in the field and to navigate grad school. Take more time to include grad students in professional activities and networking opportunities.
