    I have been working at University of Southern California part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    As a Ph.D student here, really do not have much to say. However, the experience is really valuable and I have learned a lot here compared with Ph.D experience heard from other friends.

    Cons

    The salary for RA and TA in our department is relatively low compared with other department. What's more, for TA job, we need to be sufferred from high load work.

    Advice to Management

    The teaching assistants have done too much work which should be done by professors....

    I have been working at University of Southern California full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working at a university gives you access to an array of educational (obviously) tools and events that help one strengthen one's skill set and widen one's network easily. Exciting events and things to do at all times ... life as if one is a student, only now you're getting paid!

    Cons

    Having to negotiate between different Schools -- different internal systems, bureaucracy, dissolving departments, faculty/co-workers coming and going.

    Advice to Management

    Learn about who'd been there before you from those who have seen changes and can advise you on what may be next, who you should know, why you don't want to create fissures
