    I have been working at UMass Boston part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice offer for grad students trying to develop their career. Good pay/hour given easiness of the job.

    Cons

    Outdated evaluation system of students and arbitrary teaching. Few career fairs and opportunities for finding jobs within the system.

    Advice to Management

    More attention to grad students in general. UMass is an undergrad level university and that does not seem to be changing anytime soon.
