I have been working at Stanford University full-time

Pros

you know what Stanford means to a scientist. it is not about the money and title.

Cons

declining insurance coverage, although minimum salary is way higher than national average, more than half salary goes to rent, wait a minute, may 2/3 plus.

    I worked at Stanford University

    Pros

    Best place I've ever worked. I felt useful and like all of the work that I did mattered. I had a great time while I was there. I wish I could still work there.

    Cons

    I really can't think of anything. But this site has a 20 word minimum, so I have to add a couple more words to flesh this thing out. I wonder if this is enough...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep being awesome.

    Little TA training but great opportunity for career advancement

    I have been working at Stanford University part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Networking opportunities are everywhere, and it's good to have teaching experience on the resume. You'll learn more than you think as well. The students are relatively easy to teach as they all want to get good grades - definitely not a TFA position.

    Cons

    Pay is not great, unless you include tuition coverage. There's also very little training before you begin teaching, so a lot of that you'll have to pick up as you go. Some students will feel entitled to your time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should consider more centralized coordination of section problems.
