Current Employee - Teaching Assistant in New York, NY

I have been working at Columbia University part-time for less than a year

Pros

You can learn much more for that course, and improve your teaching ability. You also can learn a lot form students' questions. Working as a assistant of the professor is also a good experience in student life.

Cons

Salary is a little bit low. As not good as before. But the workload is the same. Sometimes there are some students disputing their grades of HW or exams, sometimes it's hard to handle difficult situations.
