    I have been working at TEES part-time

    Pros

    The work is engaging and good quality. Intellectually simulating tasks and you will surely gain a skill or two. Definitely will be an experience of teamwork.

    Cons

    Meeting Deadlines will be a part of your daily work. This can be pretty taxing at the time of tests and finals.

    I have been working at TEES part-time

    Pros

    They paid my tuition, fees, and insurances. I also get monthly pay for living expense. The pay is good and enough for living in a small college town.

    Cons

    I need work hard partially because I am a college student and have a lot of homework and exams, and partially because the research work assigned to me is tough. There is no such thing as a free lunch.

    I worked at TEES full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you grow tired of your current department, you can switch to another and be working with all new people.

    You get a lot of time off for the holidays.

    The health and retirement benefits are good.

    Cons

    They do not want to hire additional staff which makes it harder on everyone.

    The compensation is not very good.

    The staff is seen as second class citizens and the faculty is the top priority (even over the students).

    Advice to Management

    Increase compensation amounts and show staff that they are valued.

    Pros

    Faculty are all super-intelligent. Most staff are dedicated and hard-working with good interpersonal skills. Excellent benefits. Good IT and up-to-date computers and peripherals. Usually work expectations are clearly defined. Offices are furnished with modern furniture.

    Cons

    As in most organizations, the compliant, competent employee gets loaded down with most of the work. Demonstrate competence and acquiescence and expect to work 10 to 12 hours per day on a regular basis, along with some weekends—without compensation. Enormous, unbridgeable disparity of power between faculty and staff. I have known of many cases, and have personally witnessed or been victim to instances, of faculty berating and verbally abusing staff for minor mistakes or even for imaginary infractions. A very well hidden grievance process exists (unknown even to long-time employees), so most staff just "take it." A report to the third-party ethics contractor about a faculty member stealing university property (accompanied by 8 months of documentation) was dismissed with the citation of a nonapplicable university rule.

    Advice to Management

    Quick and effective action against abuse of power. Committees and ad hoc working groups accomplish nothing. Enact an ethics policy with some positive power.
