    I have been working at University of Connecticut part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Intelligent professors/colleagues, paid well, and flexibility.

    Cons

    Need a good supervisor who has plenty of work so that you can develop your skills

    Advice to Management

    Better understand that some professors don't need graduate assistants (GAs), so some graduate students do little-to-no work. The professors that don't really need a GA should not be given one and the stipend that comes with the GA should be allocated to other GAs that are working hard.
