    Pros

    -compensation in Crop Sciences was
    -assistantship was voluntary, so I didn't have to rely on it, which arguably raises the quality of teaching
    -opportunity to directly teach students, not just grade
    -being an international student did not slow things down (working actually had the benefit of providing me with a SSN, non-resident tax treaty benefits)

    Cons

    -It's a teaching assistantship. Don't expect to get that much.
    -grading sucks
