    I have been working at Florida Atlantic University part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There is a tuition waver for some of the assistants (It can vary by department) just in charge of paying fees. Also received a stipend for working 20hr/week. I worked as a teaching assistant and a research assistant but the responsibilities and difficulties can vary by role.

    Cons

    I cannot think of many cons but again, can vary by department. For me, I would say that the assistants got the short-end of the stick when it came to changes.
