    Pros

    Access to university laboratories and research. Professors were very intelligent and caring for someone new to teaching.

    Cons

    The large university size implies larger size classrooms. My lab section consistently had 35-50 students for one to two TAs.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more than two TAs per section.

  3. Maryland is a good organization and the people there are excellent.

    Pros

    The hourly wage may not be as good as one may like. The people at the Business school are great and easy to talk to. The community is great and it's easy to talk to people when help is needed.

    Cons

    The pay could be a little higher. There is not really too many cons except for pay, it's really a nice place to work and the people understand how to be good team players.

    Pros

    Freedom to pursue research; faculty support. Many faculty are well-funded and there are a lot of resources available, e.g. robots, computers, etc. The health care plan is good, several options available.

    Cons

    Grad students aren't paid much; it's part of the gig. There's not much structure to the work environment, for some people this could be a negative. Projects are largely self-directed and progress is therefore self-determined.

  8. The best place ever.

    Pros

    Stable job, Competitive pay. Great environment to work. They foster a sense of community in the workplace. They have decent benefits.

    Cons

    Managment was not always willing to listen to entry level workers. There is a lot of red tape at the university. Workflows sometimes cause you to do things the hard way instead of the smart way.

    Advice to Management

    Clearer paths to promotions
