      Pros

      You get to learn so much! This will be able to help you get ready for the real world. I personally learned so much and it helped me land a dream job after graduation. I worked for the College of Engineering. Not only that, you're also able to just focus on school.

      Cons

      I personally don't have any complaints at all! I was able to learn and experiment a lot. This got be a good amount of experience, even better than an internship. Also, I'm sure this depends, my supervisor was the best.
