    I worked at University of South Florida (More than a year)

    Pros

    The department I worked in was awesome the overall organization doesn't treat their GA's very well.

    Cons

    The collective bargaining process wasn't so much of a bargain process as the administration telling us what our choices were. This is an aspirational university, in that it wan;ts to be ranked among the top universities in the country. They don;t understand that they need to offer similar benefits and pay to attract and keep the caliber of talent they want.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to what your faculty tell you they need. Teaching isn't a calling, it's a profession. if you want the best you are going to have to pay for it.

    I worked at University of South Florida part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    As a graduate student employee, I was offered health insurance (at no cost to me), a tuition waiver, and a competitive stipend. The evaluations were also helpful, each semester I was able to see how I was improving and areas that I still needed to focus on to become the best teaching assistant I could be.

    Cons

    I had to reapply each semester for a new position, so employment was never guaranteed. Also, the university does not consider this position as an internal candidate. After graduation, I was no longer eligible for employment and have to apply for positions as an external candidate.

    Advice to Management

    Keep offering the great benefits. Health insurance was especially helpful! The reviews were a helpful tool. However, they are not always completed every semester. Consistent employment or the abiity to apply for positions as an internal candidate would be helpful.
