    Former Employee - Secretary in Amherst, MA
    Former Employee - Secretary in Amherst, MA

    I worked at University of Massachusetts full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    My job gave me the opportunity to meet other students and faculty across the campus. It also gave me an insight as to what was occurring culturally and otherwise on campus.

    Cons

    Sometimes work tended to be a bit much but that is expected depending on who you work with, your job expectations and the time in the semester.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep in mind the meaning of work-study and try not to overwhelm student workers with 'busy work' it would make things a lot more manageable for them during exam times.

    Current Employee - Teaching Assistant in Amherst, MA

    I have been working at University of Massachusetts part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Clear instructions were given to the teaching assistants for their next lesson plan, though previous experience is suggested to ease into presentation skills

    Cons

    While the working environment was very good, I felt that the material could be handled better in terms of reviewing earlier material. It's necessary that students have previous knowledge of statistics, but students do not enter the class with perfect memories.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work
