    Work as General Engineering Teaching Assistant

    Nov 21, 2014 - Teaching Assistant in Brooklyn, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Working as a TA for General Engineering comes with a lot of benefits. You have access to an office where you can study and do your work. There are always people there that you can collaborate with and it has been a huge blessing during my time at Poly. The work itself is what you make of it - if you only work the class sessions (labs, lectures, tours) then it's enjoyable work with flexible hours. The real fun is doing some of the projects - I worked on an R&D project and learned a ton while having something to put on my resume. I cannot say enough good things about this position.

    Cons

    Very few - I had some trouble getting paid but that was more on the university than the department and I had been inactive for a bit due to an internship. The R&D projects were great for getting experience but as an upperclassman, I needed more complex projects to put on my resume. Still kept the EG job, just didn't do as many hours.

    Pros

    Residence life was the best department to work for. It was a friendly, energetic and fun work environment. There are a lot of experiences that I've had to set apart my college experience. I have truly enjoyed my time working here until Fall 2013.

    Cons

    NYU has a completely different system which I can see works for them. However, the way Poly RAs were trained help them handle situations of all kinds. I feel NYU policy and training will ruin that advantage that Poly RAs have.
