I worked at UC Riverside part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

`Flexible hours and knowledgeable peers and supervisors. Plenty of opportunities for student positions, but you have to search for them.

Cons

No benefits package due to limited amount of hours available to students. This also hinders earning potential.

    I worked at UC Riverside part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There is absolutely nothing- no wait, it is not far from L.A. And San Diego

    Cons

    Business TA's are really exploited. Discussion sections in business are twice the size of discussion sections in any other part of the university. Worse, graduate classes in business for which you pay an extra $ 20k per year are huge compared to all other graduate classes on campus where the students don't pay extra. The building stinks. Faculty are worthless and the good ones keep leaving. Stay far away.

    I have been working at UC Riverside part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Teaching assistant-ship pays for tuition and most fees, if you have 25% appointment or above (10 hrs per week). If you are over 25% the benefits are very good. If less, then it's an average part-time job for a grad student (time that might be better utilized finishing your degree quicker).

    Cons

    Facilities are not well-maintained. Learning labs (computer lab, mechatronics lab, machine shop) are a mess.

    Advice to Management

    Do away with 24% appointments.
