    Pros

    I just recently graduated and worked some student assistant jobs. The managers, coworkers, and other CU Denver staff are phenomonal.

    Cons

    However, some of the students, teachers, or parents that you have to help aren't so great, as expected in any job that requires working with customers.

    Pros

    University campus, nice professors, pretty good students.

    Cons

    Pay wasn't great for my teaching load. Too much bureaucracy (as with most campuses) and too much competition between instructors and adjuncts trying to get tenure-track jobs.

    Pros

    Free housing and dining as an RA, supervisor who tries to listen.

    Cons

    Supervisor can't get anything done because upper management is a mess, upper management knows students have to work as RAs to afford housing and often have unrealistic expectations as a result
