    I worked at Florida International University

    Pros

    If you like research and you find a good adviser. That maybe very interesting and you got you Ph.d degree in 4-5 years.

    Cons

    Because you are a student so the income is pretty low and you professor maybe force you to work a lot or he can fire you anytime he wants.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not trade your students too uncharitable.
