    I have been working at University of Houston part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you are a PhD student in sciences, it is a great way to survive grad school, a tuition waiver and modest salary is provided. Flexibility in hours is another benefit.

    Cons

    Very low wages, workload is unevenly distributed in working groups, and hours that typically stretch longer than what should be part time. Very disruptive football games happening during the week force class cancellations and rescheduling exams, not to mention parking issues. Many other TAs do not consider this to be a real job and treat it as such.

    Advice to Management

    Stop prioritizing football over academics, raise the bar for new hires.
