I worked at University of Wisconsin-Madison full-time (More than a year)

Pros

There are many opportunities to learn and develop. Classes and talks outside of your department are often open for you to learn a topic outside your field of study. Good training for TAs.

Cons

Depending on your professor, you may or may not get too much direction on what/how to teach. Completing MS in engineering often takes 2-2.5 years with other responsibilities (e.g. teaching, research).
