    Has long unpayed time off

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Graduate Teaching Assistant in Amherst, Massachusetts

    There's really no downside to the health, dental, and vision benefits. Maybe the downside is it can be a little hard to figure out how everything works and you can't depend on your department to inform you, but rely on your peers, the union, CHP staff, and UHS staff and you can get informed with a little effort.

    I worked as a freelancer so I got no benefits and no money for the work I did.

    As a contracted technician (6 month term), I did not have access to a benefits package. I did have the opportunity to take vacation time off, however.

    You do not have to pay for state taxes because you will be working at a state school

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Amherst, Massachusetts

    The best aspect of this role is simply being able to learn and conduct research. Your learning will be dependent on the lab itself as some require assistants to partake in more tasks.

    The graduate student benefits are really good for health care and childcare.

    Free room and board make a large difference when it comes to housing affordability at school. Then the discount parking is incredible, almost $250 discount.

    Health insurance is good, plus dental and vision.
