    Pros

    They allow undergraduates to work part-time as teaching assistants for CS classes which you have taken and done well in. It is a good opportunity to help students, which in turn helps you build on your CS skills. The position is also very flexible in terms of hours. They understand that most of the students working are full-time students so you can decide which days/times works best for you.

    Cons

    Some GTAs do not require attendance during labs, so some times majority of class will not show up to lab
