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

I have been working at University of North Carolina as a contractor (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.

    Pros

    Great environment, beautiful campus, great colleagues, low stress. Mission-driven and most people are devoted to their work. Open, thoughtful environment.

    Cons

    State employee salary and (lack of) benefits. Not much opportunity for growth. Can be stodgy, bureaucratic at times. Feels hard to make a difference. Budget woes for 5+ years, can be hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work hard to repair recently tarnished reputation. Make bold decisions!
