    I worked at SIUE part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    SIUE provides TAs with a chance to work in labs and help develop technical writing skills through the grading of other students work.

    Cons

    Some of the equipment is outdated and due to insufficient state funding. Many students seem to be interested in doing only the bare minimum when it comes to course work which tends to make grading difficult. Even with the tuition waived for TAs it is hard to live on the small salary.
