    I worked at University of Louisiana at Lafayette (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good opportunity for experience. Plus the extra money was nice. It allowed one to get a sense of how teaching a class online would feel.

    Cons

    You get paid once a month. The hours are sort of sporadic (that's due to the clients and not the job). The pay could be better.

    Pros

    It was a very healthy working environment. Peers and colleagues were ready to help and were very friendly. The work load was decent.

    Cons

    The assistantship was not very high. Was just enough to live with bare essentials. Even as a student had a tough time managing the expenses. Could not save money at all.

    Advice to Management

    If the assistantship could be raised the it will be very nice for the graduate students. The working environment is good, the staff are friendly. The work load is also decent but I wish the salary was a little more then it would have been really nice.
