    I worked at University of Denver part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Most GA partnerships are accommodating to class schedule and the diversity of projects. however this does mean you are paired with the right "boss". The school understands the pressures of student life and the financial benefits are great. It does add another piece to the workload, but worth it.

    Cons

    Sometimes it is hard to get the time you need to engage with the professor, just do to scheduling. If they travel alot, it can be difficult which means you have to be more of a self starter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open up more GA positions for students and do not limit the time they get. I never understood why GAs could not be a GA for more than 5 trimesters. Does make sense...

    Pros

    Strong emphasis on ethics, consensus, and inclusiveness. Collaboration across departments is better than at many other universities. Work-life balance encouraged.

    Cons

    Some academic/functional "silos" common in higher ed result in duplicative effort.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep innovating!
