    Pros

    I really enjoyed my time at the Cornell university library. I got to work with great people and do really fun and interesting projects. Everyone I met was excited about their work and helpful.

    Cons

    The library is very old school and resistant to change. It's hard to get some people to see the new and better ways of doing things that technology allows us. Some staff members have been working there for decades. This probably isn't as much of a problem any more with the staff reductions that happened after the recession but still could be.

  2. Teaching assistantship was fun but took up too much time

    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.
