      Pros

      As an engineering undergraduate research assistant, I was fortunate enough to choose my hours of work, which allowed me to plan around my already set schedule for studying and work later or earlier in the day.

      Cons

      Depending on who you will work with, you may or may not get to publish or present your work at conferences.
