    I have been working at Florida State University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very friendly and helpful staff and working students. A lot of very usable technologies including but not limited to sample prep materials and mass spectrometers available to graduate students and employees alike. Very diverse multicultural backgrounds in university allow for integrated approaches to solve geologic problems.
