I worked at Cornell University part-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

It was a lot of fun to interact with intelligent and inquisitive students. Always enjoyed the challenge of presenting new ideas and concepts to students.

Cons

Prep work, grading, meetings take up a lot of time - perhaps more hires will make this process easier. Also, it would help to get more specialized graders so that teaching assistants can concentrate on best presenting the material.

    Pros

    Its a good way for undergraduate to gain experience when they are still in college and you get to know new people.

    Cons

    You have to work at least 5 hours per week and during assignments times you have to work more and the salary is not very high.
