    I have been working at George Mason University full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The atmosphere can be relaxed. You are trading salary for flexibility, in some cases.

    Cons

    The environment can be retrograde, with lip service given to things like remote work friendliness. Salaries are low. There are a lot of egos and, oddly, a lot of paranoia.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay people market value and you will retain them. Fall a little out of love with outsourcing.

    Former Employee - Graduate Teaching Assistant in Fairfax, VA

    I worked at George Mason University part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Best reason to work is satisfaction of working with student and learning in return. If you are working under good professor, life is good.

    Cons

    The cons were not so understanding management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be little lenient to the GTA as they are students too.
