    I have been working at University of Maryland part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most of the faculty you work with is nice, on average, and the work load for teaching assistant is on average low, so students have plenty of time to do research.

    Cons

    Depending on the professor you work with, he/she can ask you to make unreasonable tasks, such as requiring a TA with F1 visa to work more than 20 hours a week.

    Advice to Management

    Because the work load is professor dependent, surveys will only capture the average satisfaction from grad students. But while some might be highly satisfied with their jobs, others might not, depending on the professor they are working with.
