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

    Pros

    Excellent professor, great group of researchers, Research project of great interest and significant learning.

    Cons

    None, everything is wonderful, as long as student is able to manage it well. If rigorous research and continuous learning is too hectic, Research Assistantship can be a big task.

    Advice to Management

    Excellent research. Please make sure that the research can lead to full time opportunities. After spending a lot of hours without thinking twice of anything else it would be helpful that the University understands the sacrifices of a research assistant and helps with finding full time.
