    I have been working at UC Merced part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You can get a lot of quality time with professors. The number of students is fairly low and this creates a high professor per student ratio. This is one of the biggest advantage of this university.

    Cons

    The city of Merced is one of the worst in USA. It is really hard to find sophiscticated people in the city. The university environment is the only saved place in the city. Since the university is very new, the rules, the culture are not totally established yet. This can sometimes be frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Make it harder for undergrads to pass classes.


  2. Being a TA under a bad lecturer sucks

    Pros

    Great way to learn how to become a better instructor

    Cons

    If your supervisor isn't organized and very thorough about what needs to be covered, etc, then trying to put together the lab and grading is a big pain in the butt.

    Advice to Management

    Figure your stuff out!
