As a graduate student, I've had a great experience at Rutgers, but experiences are very advisor-dependent.

    14 paid / unpaid

    This was when I was employed as a TA. When I was a fellow, I was allowed to take off as much time as I felt was reasonable (ended up being 6-8 weeks I believe).

    The department, supervisor, funding, and more all play into a good work experience or not. Academia is very hierarchical.

    Treat employees as if they matter.
