"Little TA training but great opportunity for career advancement"

Neutral Outlook

I have been working at Stanford University part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Networking opportunities are everywhere, and it's good to have teaching experience on the resume. You'll learn more than you think as well. The students are relatively easy to teach as they all want to get good grades - definitely not a TFA position.

Cons

Pay is not great, unless you include tuition coverage. There's also very little training before you begin teaching, so a lot of that you'll have to pick up as you go. Some students will feel entitled to your time.

Advice to Management

Should consider more centralized coordination of section problems.
