    Positive Outlook

    I worked at UC Davis (More than a year)

    Pros

    Interesting research topic, with a broad range of applications. Students can work flexible hours pretty much as many hours as they can handle.

    Cons

    Can be very tedious work, with hours on end staring through a microscope. Field opportunities are limited.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage students to take breaks from microscope work, and allow students more opportunities to come out to the field.

    I worked at UC Davis part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    On campus, so no need for transportation between work and classes. Staff and students are very friendly, with occasional exceptions. Excellent for part- time. Amazing coworkers.

    Cons

    Can be stressful at times, do not recommend for someone that cannot work under pressure. Poor directions and low supervision causes mistakes to occur frequently, sometimes with consequences. Poor communication between workers and supervisors.

    Advice to Management

    Closer supervision and training of student workers would decrease frequency of mistakes occurring.
