Rewarding but demanding work as a graduate teaching assistant

Current Employee - Graduate Teaching Assistant  in  Chapel Hill, NC
Current Employee - Graduate Teaching Assistant in Chapel Hill, NC

I have been working at University of North Carolina as a contractor for less than a year

Pros

Rewarding experiences consist of regular encounters with bright students who provide quick and honest feedback. Fair advising from the teaching faculty; however, consensus to most questions were addressed by a team of TAs.

Cons

An uneven distribution of workload can result in long busy streaks, particularly at the end of the semester. The compensation for teaching positions does not match this workload.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please consider raising teaching assistantship compensation levels to match estimates of workload throughout the semester.

    I worked at University of North Carolina full-time

    Pros

    Prestigous University so the name carries a lot of weight even outside of the South. I moved and was surprised how many people (not all) recognize the Carolina name for more than basketball.

    Cons

    Was tired of hearing about the "Carolina Way." Change is not always bad. Hired many UNC grads which continued this status quo thinking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees and their time. Not everyone sees their job as their life.
