Teaching Assistant

Teaching Assistant (Current Employee)
Williamstown, MA

ProsProfessors are usually very kind and helpful. They sometimes would provide the solutions for grading which saves TAs time to come up with solutions themselves for grading problem sets. The deadlines for finish grading are often flexible too.

ConsThe hourly pay is low compared to many other colleges. Also, lower level classes may have a huge class size (20+) and maximum hours per week allowed is only 10 hours, so sometimes TAs have to work extra hours without getting compensated for the extra hours.

Advice to Senior ManagementRaise the pay to be on par with other colleges. It's fair to say that most other colleges have graduate students being TAs so they need higher compensations but that's not always the case.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
