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

Pros

As a research assistant, you have extremely flexible work schedules as they will schedule around your preferences. Most of the time, the job is relatively simple and you can multitask during the process.

Cons

UBC is relatively located in a remote place and it may be inconvenient for those that do not have class/do not live on campus to commute all the way for a few hours of work. Work also comes irregularly and is dependent on how many people they require

    I have been working at University of British Columbia full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Because it is working in a university, people are very friendly, and always glad to help -- you learn a lot like a student. The benefits are great too.

    Cons

    the salary is not very high (just average). but thinking about you won't be laid off in a normal case. your job is very secured, with plenty of holidays, plenty of free times.
