    Pros

    Good salary.
    You wont be hired unless you are a grad student. So the pro would be getting in touch with the undergrad life which syracuse is so popular for.

    Cons

    Problem is you are not assured so-and-so no of hours per week. During midterms and finals, you ll get a lotta students but otherwise cant say.

    Working with my staff is something I look forward to every day. Not only is the staff that I work with great, but the kids are great as well. I have made some friends I will have for the rest of my life and if it wasn't for Syracuse University, things wouldn't have been the same.

    Cons

    A bit time consuming, it sometimes affects my studies but I manage to do well.
