    I worked at Brigham Young University (BYU) part-time

    Pros

    The students there are some of the easiest to work with that I have ever encountered, and the faculty (for the most part) are incredibly invested in the students' learning experience.

    Cons

    The pay could have been better for how specialized the knowledge was. I wasn't exactly teaching Chem 101.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to get good TA's for upper division courses, you ought to pay them a little bit better. The people who have the expertise you're looking for are usually the busiest, and they're going to need an incentive to bother taking the job.

  3. "Good wages and benefits for higher ed"

    I worked at Brigham Young University (BYU) part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It was an easy job

    Cons

    I would probably have a better review had I had a better manager. The manager I worked under was TERRIBLE. I cant express that enough. She played favorites, was not fair, and kept nothing confidential. It seemed that she was more concerned with being friends with the employees than doing well at her job. Nothing was confidential and any gossip was started by her which made it seem more than okay to do. She would complain about staff she didn't like and everyone who when someone was going to get fired and why. She made it a very hostile place to work, especially if you weren't a "favorite". I would discourage anyone from working under her.
