    Pros

    They understand you are a student, so they are flexible with scheduling.

    Cons

    Tutors should be paid way more. $10 an hour is not enough, as most tutors get paid at least double.

    Advice to Management

    Higher pay for tutors.

    I have been working at University of Miami part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Professors are very flexible, they are willing to take on undergraduates and help them learn how to conduct academic research. They understand that you might not have a significant amount of expertise and are willing to help you get up to speed.

    Cons

    The work is relatively unorganized, so if you are the type of person who needs to have strict deadlines, it might not work out for you. Ideally, they would a more concrete deliverable goal. Also, there is no guarantee that your work will be published, so it is hard to quantify your progress as a research assistant.

    Advice to Management

    I don't really have any specific advice for management other than to make it more of a formal organized process. I simply reached out to a professor at UM and asked if I could be a research assistant, and he was kind enough to offer me a position.
