      Pay is low, environment depends on your team/ Principal Investigator

      Pros

      The weight of saying that you work at Georgetown is great. Of course, you can network and meet other people. The biggest pro for me was the benefits, especially that you get free or reduced tuition for you or your children.

      Cons

      I think the pay was very low for the amount of work expected. A salary of 30-40k a year while living in Washington, DC and saving to apply to graduate school or medical school is incredibly hard to live with. Transportation to the university is an big issue.
