    Student Researcher Review

    Dec 26, 2022 - Machine Learning Engineer 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Remote work and flexible hours

    Cons

    This specific student researcher job required the use of a VPN to access a computer on campus which had its IP changed semi frequently. This slowed down work but otherwise was not an issue.
