Pros: flexible schedule, benefits, experience
Cons: pay, little to no advancement, very slow approval process, parking
Great place to learn and gain experience. I got to work closely with faculty and graduate students. A typical day involved managing the lab, ordering lab supplies, assist with research projects (lab and field), highly involved with the technical work and lab safety. I also had supervisory responsibilities. Overall, an enjoyable experience and have met – more... lots of great people.
The downside of the job is the pay and pay raises don't happen often. It is very difficult to advance and the approval process is very slow. During the academic year, finding parking is a struggle no matter where you park (on-campus or off-campus). – less
