    Incredible benefits, mediocre pay

    Pros

    The benefits. Free tuition. Easy access to trax and other forms of transportation. Incredible medical benefits. It's also very stable work. They don't fire people even when they are obvious dirt bags among the ranks. So if you're looking for a place to work where you aren't held to really high standards. I guess this would probably be in the downsides section

    Cons

    The pay is not as good when compared to others doing this same line of work in the private sector. Just like I was saying earlier. Some people look towards government jobs as a place to receive a decent paycheck for not doing very much work.

    Pros

    Good People, Good atmosphere. Easy place to work and flexible. Care about their employees and their families. A lot of opportunities to take advantage of furthering your education.

    Cons

    Advancement and Pay are a huge downside. Opportunities to get promoted are almost non-existant. A pay increase is usually a function of the legislature and not about job performance.

    Minimum Pay Defined by Department But Not Enforced

    Sep 18, 2019 - Graduate Research Assistant in Salt Lake City, UT
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Go for the master's degree. Skip the PhD. Get a job. Start building your 401K.

    Cons

    Minimum pay was defined by the departments but not enforced. There was great discrepancies in pay purely based on the group you were doing research in. Our group was a mix of engineers and scientist. They wanted us to all have the same starting pay even though engineers had to pay differential tuition and the physicts did not. So engineers lost about 1/3 of their salary right off the bat.

    Summer jobs are exactly what you would expect.

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling and an acceptable way to get a better idea of what is actually done in research environments.

    Cons

    No benefits and the pay isn't enough to assist you with a hospital bill should something go wrong. They're confident your parents's insurance will cover it.
