    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Research Foundation of State University New York full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Getting paid to get a graduate degree, tuition covered plus a decent, though not luxurious, living expense. Networking opportunities in your field.

    Cons

    Red tape and bureaucracy can be a real pain in the side. Some heavy-handed decisions by higher-ups. It's grad school, on someone's funding, so advisement can be hit-or-miss - I had a nice guy for an adviser, but I was worked to the bone, and he wasn't too useful in the job search.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the red tape and the paperwork. Please.


  2. "I get a salary to get my PhD, and the department pays for my classes. I can't complain."
