  1. "Good teaching opportunity"

    Pros

    As a TA you will get the opportunity to gain valuable teaching experience.

    Cons

    If you ever want to become a full-time teacher at a community college anywhere in the US, good luck. You will need a PhD to compete. An MA will only open doors to part-time or subbing positions, which don't lead to full-time positions. Part-time hourly rates are substantially lower than full-time rates. There are many frustrated part-time teachers at community colleges who have been working for years hoping the job market will improve. The truth is that it hasn't and it may never improve.

    Advice to Management

    None.


  2. "A lot of opportunities that will hone your skills and knowledge."

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at CAL State San Marcos part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working in campus is a great advantage, especially if you have classes in between. If you plan to have a job after graduation, working in IITS (Instructional and Information Technology) can serve you best. IITS has different departments or routes you could choose from, depending upon what you want to learn and what your interests are.

    Cons

    The budget constraints and a lot of politics involved within the community that affects all employees (faculty/staff/employee). I wish there were some way that could remedy this problem, but it always somehow slips through.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!
