    Pros

    Excellent Place to acquire a wide range of skills in this industry. Good stepping stone. Good place to start a career. Lots of flexibility to run your lab how to you see fit. Minimal supervision in several of the labs.

    Cons

    DOES NOT PAY A DECENT SALARY. No real room for growth unless you plan to move upstate. That’s where most of the higher paying jobs are Most labs are ran by one person. It is literally a 2-3 person job per lab especially since the online study presence has been made permanent. You do everything, from teaching, enrollment, advisement, certification testing, marketing, professional development, get and maintain partnerships, and much more. 30 minute lunch breaks.
