best ting is that it has vibrant environment, they support financially worst thing is that the courses offered are few, phd students are decreasing
Can learn a lot , best lectures and best place to work
best or worst thing about the benefits package , 401k package.
I like the environment, meetings were not stressful, supervisor was helpful and undrestanding
As a research assistant, you cannot expect to get benefits package. You should pay about one-third of your salary as the registration fee
It is a great place for students to work and gain experience but all the other benefits are mostly compared as a student job
Benefits package includes a marginal health insurance cover and living cost for 1 person.
I'm part time so there really isn't a benefits package.
As long as the state doesn't mess with things the health insurance is excellent. As faculty you only have sick days and must take vacation during school breaks of course. Pension system is questionable due to the state's current problems.
Insurance costs, paid time off, sick time, education benefits for the employee and children all make SIU Carbondale worth a look!
