    I worked at J-PAL full-time

    Pros

    1. Wonderful fieldwork experience. Can't get better than J-PAL 2. Rigorous team management skills. Too bad if you consider yourself a snobbish prude who has only excelled in academics. Management is an essential part of the job. Learn it here. 3. Develop brilliant insights on data science and management.

    Cons

    1. Not many career trajectory discussions - can leave the RA a bit puzzled and insecure. 2. Salary low BUT it's recompensed with additional skills to increases earning capacity in the future.

    Advice to Management

    It's an erudite management. I'm sure they don't need advice.
