Pros

Although it really depends on which course you TA under, TA's are treated and generally paid well. Workload is not too heavy, and you can always let your professor know if you need a week off.

Cons

TA-ing as a freshman results in really poor pay, considering that we do the same amount of work as the upperclassmen do.

    Pros

    The facilities and resources are top-notch, but most of all, working under some of the brightest minds is what made this an outstanding research internship.

    Cons

    Can't think of anything off the top of my head.


  2. Came here nine years ago for a brief sabbatical, found it was a great place to be part of, been part of it since.

    Pros

    Bright students and colleagues, innovative and entrepreneurial culture, willingness to try new and unproven ideas in education and research. It's a bit like working at Hogwarts some days.

    Cons

    We move and make decisions quickly for a university, but that's still a much slower pace of action than you might find in a modern for-profit company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.
