    Provided with own working space

    Cons

    Job can become boring when all projects are completed. There are small continuing task that are available, but they become mundane very quickly.

    I have been working at University of Mississippi full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere, easy going professors, equipped with all most all instruments. small size classes so that easy to get contact with professors whenever we have a question. Scenic campus

    Cons

    Small department, Not much grant money in the department. So most of the times students have to teach almost every semester until they graduate. So very less chances of getting research assistance ship until you wait till end of your graduation.

    I worked at University of Mississippi for more than a year

    Pros

    I got to meet many people and participate in many different programs. I also got experience in managing many different types of issues.

    Cons

    It was frustrating how disorganized everything was. I never knew what to expect. I also was forced to cover desk shifts that I shouldn't have since they weren't competent enough to hire someone for these shifts after 3 weeks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you make a calendar, stick to it.
