    I worked at University of Bristol

    Pros

    --opportunity to for those who want to teach after they finish their Ph.D., --opportunity to learn how to communicate effectively; --improve problem solving skill; --opportunity to understand the human learning curve

    Cons

    --Really bad IT service (mainly due to the way it is organized), which makes it very hard to deliver high quality teaching. For example the industrial software used for teaching may be broken after major update on the operating systems and no one notice and fixed them until term starts, --The workload for the role is too heavy (may depend on supervisor), and the pay doesn't justify the effort put in and the responsibility

    Advice to Management

    You guys need to prepare the Hourly Paid Teacher contract on time---- in some cases the contract is received after the work is finished, which is a bit too slow. This also results the pay to get delayed.
