"Being graduate research assistant an individual has to be self motivated, ready to tackle problems immediately and continuously up to date about current technology improvements. Basically, graduate research assistant is a light switch which has to stay on forever. I liked being research assistant because of above mentioned aspects as I do fit in this kind job."
"I like everything about my current position. I will eventually have to graduate and move on."
"I have all the freedom to excel and do my projects and improve skills."

"I love the lab environment and the colleagues. I also love my research topic. I have received a scholarship for my research. This is called Eisenhower Research Scholarship.

"It's a good balance of both education and work environment."
"Working in laboratories in the beginning stages of learning about strength and durability properties of different materials has been a significant part of work that I love most about being a GRA.

I hate to be in routine work and move on with field works.The compensation that is given for the knowledge that I input is not up to the satisfaction after being worked for more than 5 years."
"Nothing to hate. All seems to be good."
