Good professors and other students to work with, but the bureaucracy was terrible
Research assistant (Current Employee) – Tallahassee, FL – January 7, 2016
Typically, I would either be going to class or focusing mostly on research. Research consisted of looking up new papers on my research area, finding out if it related to my project, and then modifying discovered methods in order to further my own progress. The coworkers were nice and helpful. The hours were a little demanding for the amount of pay and benefits being received, but that's apparently the norm for graduate research assistants.
Free lunches and snacks during some presentations
Had to pay for health insurance and fees for classes out of pocket
