    I have been working at Erasmus University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Easy, diverse, and cheap means of transportation. Well organized and efficient organizations. Technologies and management practices up to date. Very few surprises.

    Cons

    The weather may be very grey, foggy, and gloomy. The housing market for rentals is expensive, the apartments are very small. The food quality or taste are not priorities around here.

    Advice to Management

    Offer housing options.

    Pros

    Very good pay relative to working hours
    Fun experience.
    Agency and flexibility in your teaching approach

    Cons

    (depending on your professor that taught the course) the need to supervise exam which won't be counted to your working hour
    (depending on your professor that taught the course) Requires TA to grade exam, which is highly subjective so its quite unfair for students who got strict TA
