I worked at University of Miami full-time (More than a year)

Pros

• Location: Coral Gables is gorgeous, and the campus is close to many great venues.
• Teaching: The best part about my experience was the teaching. I grew to enjoy teaching labs and being with the students.

Cons

• People: My particular academic department was pretty small, and the graduate students tended to stick to various small groups delineated mostly by ethnicity/nationality.
• Course material: This was ultimately my reason for leaving. I no longer enjoyed the material I was learning, and had to leave to pursue something I enjoy.

Advice to Management

It would be nice if unilateral decisions weren't made because students complained only after final grades were posted. They had a full semester to say something, ask for help, etc., but nothing happened until they didn't receive an A for final grades.

    Pros

    Simple tasks and flexible hours with substitutions. Nice way to get school work done and the labs are a nice place to do that.

    Cons

    Some very late nights until 2:30am. Pay starts at minimum wage for entry level positions. Work can become repetitive and if you have nothing to do, it's very boring.
