Pros

It was a lot of fun to interact with intelligent and inquisitive students. Always enjoyed the challenge of presenting new ideas and concepts to students.

Cons

Prep work, grading, meetings take up a lot of time - perhaps more hires will make this process easier. Also, it would help to get more specialized graders so that teaching assistants can concentrate on best presenting the material.

    I have been working at Cornell University part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Its a good way for undergraduate to gain experience when they are still in college and you get to know new people.

    Cons

    You have to work at least 5 hours per week and during assignments times you have to work more and the salary is not very high.

    I worked at Cornell University full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Main game in town, so they dramatically underpay support staff

    Cons

    Management at all levels is incompetent but it doesn't matter because in the long run the rep of the school continues to draw in students and donations. Very political.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop being so snobbish
