    Laid back, good connections, met interesting people, worked interesting project, lots of interesting stuff to do, flexible hours, many international collegues

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    You really can fire people who don't work. Plus, it would improve morale.

    I worked at UMBC part-time

    Pros

    UMBC is an amazing university with amazing values that treats students well. As a TA, I had a ton of help being the best I could, and growing and learning. If I ever decide to teach full-time, it would be at UMBC!

    Cons

    Some of the fellow TAs could use some help in recognizing appropriate boundaries. I was impressed with how well authority figures managed it, though.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on growing
