    I have been working at Texas A&M part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The environment is good. People are friendly. Benefit package and salary are reasonably good. Students at A&M are intelligent and well behaved.

    Cons

    I can't think of any. Not that it is perfect but as an instructor I am not involved enough in the policy making process.

    I worked at Texas A&M part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone at Texas A&M is so friendly. Even though this was just a summer job, I felt like family at the end of the summer and, honestly, did not want to leave.

    Cons

    The only con was that they hired a few too many people for the office so my hours were cut back a little more than I would have liked.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    I worked at Texas A&M part-time

    Pros

    They offer many interesting research collaboration opportunities and good benefits for graduate students. Many different things for college students to do in the town, although sometimes it felt opportunities for older students were lacking. College Station has a fairly low cost of living.

    Cons

    Low pay because of the low cost of living. Not a lot of opportunities to work directly with industry and sparse job search opportunities for graduate students.
