I worked at Reed College full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

As a research assistant you get paid a lot without doing much; plus it looks great on a resume

Cons

It can be pretty boring. But again, it's pretty good for what you are paid, at least in the economics department.

    Pros

    I'm a student and the job opportunities were very good. I was able to work for several different departments and get jobs that really improved my resume. Advice to other students: you have to start EARLY if you want a job. It does seem like the jobs run out by the end of October, so if you weren't proactive at the beginning of the year, that's probably why you don't have a job.

    Cons

    Student pay scale is too low for certain jobs. It's hard to know when you're supposed to "move up" the pay scale and get a raise--it's not very transparent. It's hard to tell if that happens automatically or if someone is supposed to notice and then move you up.

    Pros

    They treat visitors like tenure-track faculty. Put you up in faculty housing at a below market rate, pay your utilities. The students are amazing. You're left to teach.

    Cons

    As a visitor, you have to leave.
