    I worked at University of Illinois at Chicago part-time

    Pros

    – TAs are responsible for independently taking classes and grading. You are considered equivalent to adjunct faculties.
    – Great learning experience. The school is guided by core principles of graphic design. You will love this place if you have like Swiss international style, print design, typography and arguing what role design shall play in the society.

    Cons

    – Unlike other departments, the School only offers 25% TAships / 10 hours per week of work. Eventually you get paid something close to what you pay back to the university in differential as a Masters student.

    Advice to Management

    – The administrative staff is slow and awful in responding to questions.
