    Current Employee - Graduate Teaching Assistant  in  Lincoln, NE
    Current Employee - Graduate Teaching Assistant in Lincoln, NE

    I have been working at University of Nebraska–Lincoln part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The staff and faculty were all very friendly to work with. The schedule was flexible, and every professor/lecturer I TA'd for was very understanding of my other commitments, ie coursework and research. Compensation was what you'd expect for being a TA. The health insurance was a better deal than I'd had in the past, and having access to the campus health and recreation facilities was convenient.

    Cons

    There is a general issue with disorganization. They failed to get paperwork done properly on more than one occasion, and I was also given conflicting information on a couple of other occasions. There were also issues with organization on a course by course basis, which at one point led to me teaching students concepts in labs that were a couple of weeks ahead of where they were in class.
