      Pros

      The professor is kind and guides you through (dependent on the professor), allows you to have a say in the direction of the research as well.

      Cons

      Not much, it really dependents on the professor.

      Work environment depends heavily on specific lab/department

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Access to advanced research facilities and scientists across diverse disciplines

      Cons

      This depends heavily on which specific lab/department you are working for. Unfortunately my lab had a very toxic work culture that did not give due recognition to the contributions of non-PhD research staff.
