    The best thing is that you get student's benefits. The worst thing is that your salary still will be lower in real amount than in Europe. Also, you are student, not employee, so your years doesn't count for getting a residency.

    The best thing about the benefits is the great pension plan. The worst thing is that the pension is the only actual perk you get apart from your salary.
