Great be a TA
Teaching Assistant (Former Employee), Gainesville, FLApril 18, 2015
Pros: Sometimes have free pizza and the best TA awards
The fun part of this job is I can communicate with so many different students because they all have different personalities and stories. At same time, I also have to know how to handle some conflicts. The hardest part of this job is I have to have really strong background knowledge of every experiment and there are 12 different experiments and be able to explain their questions very well. I learned a lot from this job and I love to do it again if I have a chance.

There is a nice place to work. I learned how to deal with different people from other cultures. My coworkers were super nice, we were closer to each other. The hardest part of the job was the audit month, every year we had a audit, it was so stressful for everyone. I have a great memories when I worked in University of Florida, I used to have a lot of fun in Christmas seasons. All employees prepared a great parties for the children.

Warm, Beautiful and Gators
Post-doc Associate (Current Employee), GainesvilleMarch 30, 2015
Pros: Year round sun
Cons: No white christmas
University of Florida is one of the largest public Universities. Although Gators and Gatorade takes the lion's share of its popularity, it does have excellent research to not-so-bad research labs. Some of the buildings are very old and there are no windows which makes it hard to completely appreciate Florida's weather or it's greenery, for some its even depressing and had to take therapy. People are always smiling if not they will be jogging, some of them do both. You have all amusement parks closeby and can have a weekend getaway if you have kids. You definitely don't have to worry about compromising your social life as its warm all-round the year you can party as much as you want, which makes it a popular destination of old well established rich senior professors from ivy leagues to retire in UF....:). Viva Gators...chomp..chomp.
