    Pros

    Not bad pay. Better than Texas A&M where I made $1650 doing the same thing. Very helpful tips from lab coordinators.

    Cons

    The Physics department has a very strict approach how their labs Must be taught. I was not a fan, but I can imagine that orchestrating so many classes is not an easy task. They could trust more in that we are rather intelligent adults. Expect 2 or 3 weekly assignments per students (~24 students per class) to grade. You will get loaded with homeworks as well. Find a good rhythm and stay on top of everything.

    Advice to Management

    More trust in employees. Less intimidation to avoid employees retaliation and/or legal challenges. We want to help and do a good job.
