    Pros

    Interesting job role and friendly supportive staff / managers

    Cons

    Work could be boom and bust, with not much happening one week, and sudden surge of work the next - based on deadlines for academic projects and funding bids, or sudden need to do lots of marking.

    Pros

    The freedom. If you are motivated and self driven it’s lovely to be your own boss.

    Cons

    A lot of freedom to do as you see best. However, professors are too busy to help you with the in-depth technical nature of a project. If you want to do a phd make sure you get a project with a Dr. who is active in research as they will give you much more of their time.
