    Pros

    Independent work hours that fir my class schedule.

    Cons

    Minimal contact with my superior and had to ask business services for access to office with hardcopies

    Advice to Management

    Provide boxes for TA's to access when the supervisor (boss/instructor) is NOT available, this will allow access to materials that need grading without coordination with business services division.
