Pros

well paid and less work. 20 hours/week. i teach weekly section and office hour. there are 4 teaching fellows in a section of 80 student. all of the other teaching fellows have taken this course so it is very easy to manage them

Cons

the tuition is not waived for this position, so the salary cannot cover everything and i still need financial aid from somewhere else

  1. It was a good boost to my resume, but quite dull.

    Pros

    They pay temporary workers well if the temporary worker is not contracted through an agency.

    Cons

    They will end your contract the day of in some circumstances. I was lucky enough to be given a month's notice.

    Advice to Management

    Consider hiring people who do not have master's or Ph.Ds for permanent positions. Most of you don't seem to consider life experience. It's valuable.


  2. Very stressful, but very much worth it if that's what you want in life

    Pros

    Good connection in the academic world, higher salary than same position in other universities (as far as I know), flexible vacation time

    Cons

    Stressful - unless you are super good at managing your time and are a genius, you will need to work on weekends and evenings, sometimes also holidays and vacations.

    Advice to Management

    work life balance of the employee can be quite important in terms of retaining them
