    I worked at Hamilton College - New York (More than a year)

    Pros

    It was a great place to work, and really gave me a good grounding for how to work in an office environment. Everybody worked well together, good communication both within the office and to alumni committees and volunteers.

    Cons

    Database software that they rely on for information is old and doesn't work properly, necessitating going through by hand to ensure information is sent to the correct people.

    Advice to Management

    Hold Phone-a-thon student workers somewhere else!

    I worked at Hamilton College - New York part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The Hamilton College French Department offered much flexibility to teaching assistants in formatting their teaching sessions and allowed assistants to be creative in how they presented materials to students.

    Cons

    Teaching assistants were sometimes left with little direction for conducting lessons. Students sometimes arrived at the teaching session unaware of what topics would be covered that week or how to prepare for drills.

    Advice to Management

    Professors should offer more direction to teaching assistants. Teaching assistants should have access to the course syllabus and example drills off of which they can structure their lessons.
