    I have been working at University of Cincinnati part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Really depends on your supervisor. If he/she has good funding then you're fine. Otherwise you might need to do Teaching Assistant work just to get more money from your college

    Cons

    Pay is average, just enough to cover the living expenses
