    I worked at University of Illinois at Chicago part-time

    Pros

    TA with tuition and fee waivers plus additional dental and vision benefits. Also, UIC offers lots of TA assignments so that most PhD students can pursue their degrees without much financial difficulties. Pretty easy work if you have already taken the course but sometimes there is just a load of homework or quizzes to grade and make solutions.

    Cons

    Some students just don't work until last minutes and bother TAs on weekend or late at night for their homework due next day. If you are lucky, you won't have to deal with unpleasant students.
