    I have been working at University of Washington part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Getting a degree, hours are flexible

    Cons

    Getting a degree doesn't necessarily mean that you're getting an education...

    Advice to Management

    Preferably more emphasis on instruction towards structured thinking so that students will eventually be able to manage their own research, instead of simply managing graduate students' research for them.


  2. "A great place to work for a starving student."

    Pros

    Always takes into account my needs when scheduling. For example, I needed additional time on Wednesdays to work on personal projects, and that time was given to me.

    Cons

    Poor ratings given by students tend to reflect refusal by tutors to help them cheat. We are not intended as a homework completion service.

    Advice to Management

    Ditch the rating system.
