  • Sep 24, 2017
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Graduate Research Assistant in Cambridge, Massachusetts

    You follow the usual academic year cycle, so you get all the accompanying holidays. Pay is competitive, and health insurance was include in my employment package. Dental was not, but a basic plan was offered at a competitive rate. Salary makes Cambridge livable, though most certainly not in style.
