Good students; low pay in a position leading to a less-than-glowing future

Writing Instructor, Program In Writing and Rhetoric (Current Employee)
Stanford, CA

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


Pros: The students you will encounter are, on average, smart and well motivated. One or two… Cons: If you're expecting your time as a graduate student and employment as a writing instructor/teaching assistant… Advice to Senior Management: Don't accept more graduate students than you can place in tenure-track positions. You're not going to keep getting quality graduate students when it takes… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
