I have been working at UC Davis full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Davis is a great school to go to because of the campus itself, the excellent professors, and the prestige of its many programs.

Cons

It's in a college town. The summer's are hot, and the winters are freezing. Research oriented, which is bad for classes, but good for undergrad research.

Advice to Management

Keep at it! Still an excellent school despite budget cuts.

    I have been working at UC Davis part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    My adviser was really helpful and taught me all that I needed to know. I was able to fit my hours around my life, as long as I got what I needed done.

    Cons

    Compensation and benefits were extremely low, if not nonexistent. I had to follow research run by adviser, and was not able to come up with my own research.
