Teaching Assistant

Graduate Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) Seattle, WA

ProsThe department was very supportive, good training provided. I did a lot of grading. The flexibility was great to have, since I lived in Redmond.

ConsAt one point, I was assigned an unreasonable amount of work. However, a conversation with the professor took care of the issue.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work! Some kind of standardizing might help, as professors sometimes don't have an idea about how much time it really takes to grade. It's not really their fault, and they are very nice if you bring it up.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
