Pros

With this job you get direct interaction with students and it will definitely let you know if you should go into teaching or even pursue a PhD

Cons

The grading workload can be heavy sometimes, especially near exam time. You may be asked to TA for several classes, so that may be overwhelming for those not prepared for that.

Advice to Management

Do a review of how the TAs are doing every semester, and pair class responsibilities with the student interests if possible.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Stable place to work with a decent benefits package. Close proximity to many different outdoor recreation opportunities. World class health care with new and expanding specialties and facilities.

    Cons

    Opportunities for growth and development are limited. Reliance on state funding and adherence to keeping the status quo limit career options and make it difficult to advance both professionally and financially. Staff leadership at both the University and hospital are stagnate.

    Advice to Management

    Infighting and pettiness among leaders needs to stop. Team work, collaboration and a desire to make this a successful place for staff to thrive, grow and advance would make this a great place to work.
