    I have been working at University of Houston part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Not very hard to work as a teaching assistant. 20 hours a week and basically ran a engineering lab for senior students. paid can cover your tuition

    Cons

    as a graduate student it took you relatively a lot of time and energy to do the job. paid did not quite match the work you've done. students are becoming more and more so that your work is also becoming heavier

    Pros

    Love being surrounded by academics and education. Very diverse faculty/staff.

    Cons

    Parking is horrible. Administrative work is not as fast as it could be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I believe they need to fix the parking problem. Students are forced to hunt for parking spots they paid 200 dollars for.

    Pros

    There are a lot of resources available at the University of Houston. Many new facilities are being built on campus.

    Cons

    Many of the cons are the same cons that are likely to be present elsewhere, such as red tape and bureaucracy.
