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

Pros

Great peer and inter-agency networking. The university was good at listening to complaints even if they weren't always resolved.

Cons

It still is a university setting so burnout does happen quickly if you do not invest in yourself. The pay is mediocre for some of the requirements they ask. Unequal hiring of the genders, but that could be lack of qualified applicants.

    I have been working at University of Oregon part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Stipend and tuition waved while going to school, limited to 20 hours a week so teaches can't over-exploit you, when there is a grader, the workload is much more manageable and fulfilling.

    Cons

    Workload can vary immensely depending on who you work for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire graders for classes with a lot of students so GTF's can focus on more pedagogical activities. Encourage Blackboard and Piazza use to professors.

    I have been working at University of Oregon part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, flexibility of schedule, challenging tasks, opportunity to learn new skills, tuition stipend. All in all, graduate school with a teaching or research assistantship is a great deal. I would highly advise it.

    Cons

    I really have not had any complaints. The professors I work with have been professional and helpful in all regards. I've heard some students complain about teaching workloads, but I myself have been able to stick to the appointed schedule without issue.
