Teaching Assistant Biology

Teaching Assistant Biology (Former Employee) Towson, MD

ProsGreat coworkers, friendly environment, covers tuition (graduate level), great way to earn a Masters if you don't mind being broke, In charge of your own class (no other teachers for biology), looks good on a resume

ConsPoor pay, difficult to afford living expenses on, tuition fees are not cover and can be over $100 per credit hour, pay is lower than adjunct teachers who are doing the same work as you

Advice to Senior ManagementProvide raise to compensate for simple inflation, consider how much apartments in the area cost, also food and gas expenses

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
