Experience as a GRA can be variable depending on research lab and professor leading it. I personally had a great experience at my research lab at RSPH as there was a lot of flexibility with my schedule and hours. The professors and PMs I worked with were very accomodating and I learned a lot through this opportunity.
Not many, my research lab had one of the lower ends of compensation but it is expected given the nature of the role (part-time and GRA).

-6% retirememt match -Access to discounts like movie tickets, car rentals,etc. -good health insurance -sometimes you can get a really good manager/mentor!
-the annual review system is unfair. Even if your direct supervisor says you deserve all 5's because of your hard work, the department can tell them to only give you 3's on a 5-point scale - research staff are incredibly underpaid and are the backbone of the public health school. Even with a $120,000 MPH degree from their school, I started out making only $42,000 (in 2019). I had to live in affordable housing for the first few years -there is a ton of turnover, since the pay is so low for the area (i.e. you will be doing your job and the job of the person who left and training the next candidate) -sometimes you can get a really bad manager (it's academia, professors are fighting for their pay to increase too, so they often take on too many projects or classes and step on folks (i.e. you or community partners) on their way up. It feels like a dog eat dog world.)1

Good opportunity for publications for new researchers
Your experience will vary from lab to lab, HR is horribly slow and incompetent
- 3.0Oct 26, 2023Project CoordinatorCurrent Employee, more than 1 yearAtlanta, GA
Everyone is super friendly, courtesy scholarship if you want to take some courses, work flexibility (hybrid/remote)
Low pay compared to most companies, not much room for growth (takes a long time)
- 4.0Oct 19, 2023Research SpecialistFormer Employee, more than 1 yearAtlanta, GA
Probably most well educated and cultured co workers, very great work environment
Pay is not dependent upon your manager or your team, although they can help. Its all controlled by HR, but with help of your manager’s great review you can get upgrade in pay

I worked at Emory University Hospital. The staff was friendly and worked as a great team.
Parking was always an issue.
