Though the part time job as a research assistant entails low pay, but the experience in terms of understanding research, the methodology employed, result analysis and proposing future work and studies were illuminating. A typical day would involve day long independent research work with weekly meetings with the supervisor to understand the direction in which I was growing. The difficulty was in time management, but as the months went on better planning, understanding work dynamics, the environment and culture improved my understanding of project management. All in all a wonderful opportunity even if the salary is on the lower scale. The payoff in terms of personal growth and development make up for it if tackled with a growth perspective.

For a research institute in India it was an excellent place to work and grow. The community of students and professors there are engaging and active and access to resources in comparable and at times even better than many universities in the United States.

A very good place to work at because of a number of professors around and a lot of Ph.D. and Post Doc graduate students to guide us. Scope for working on a lot of exciting projects is very high.

The working hours are typically more than 45 hours per week and the working culture is very good for begineers in the field of research. The most enjoyable part of the job is cooperative from senior researchers

Pro - Its a great place, lots of research opportunities. Cons : Limited hiring, low salaries I am not a student, but got an opportunity to walk around the campus, since one my friend studied there. Beautiful campus you really need to walk to get the feel of the nature. There are plenty of old trees, located off the city. There is a canteen inside the campus which serves good vegetarian food and value for money. It's also a place where making of scientists happens :-)

Though its filled with some great professors and faculty this place is zero fun. The faculty is too head strong and will never take suggestions from students or TAs

For those who want to do hard core research IISc is a good place for them. People here are very cooperative, treat every one like family. I felt like every day of mine internship went on doing one thing again and again. Due to a small mistake like if you added 0.01microliter of water extra to the solution whole experiment ruined, which you were working for past one week. But My work there was great help to my Phd. mentors thesis work. I enjoyed with my co-workers, in between day at work we used to play FIFA, counter strike.

Highest freedom to try out new things everyday. Learnt the fabrication of nano devices. I am an independent user of many fabrication equipment. Had to work with highly qualified research scholars and professors. Optimisation being the hardest part of the job, I enjoyed it too.
