      Good Union Job

      Pros

      The Union is great. The research itself is interesting but most research associate tasks are repetitive. The benefits are good with Medical costing me $17 a month and Dental and Vision are included. Has a retirement plan.

      Cons

      Pay is decent but does not go up quickly. UC administration is very bureaucratic and things are handled slowly. There is little room for growth in my job and it does not translate very well to other careers.

      Pros

      The job tends to be overall engaging and at times challenging. It depends largely on what kind of research you are doing, and your PI. Decent Pay

      Cons

      Depends on your PI in how much it is expected of you. Tend to be repetitive in the procedures you do.
