    I have been working at University of Mississippi part-time

    Pros

    Ole Miss is a great place to work and get a degree. Luckily, you can do both at the same time with a variety of competitive graduate programs.

    Cons

    Although the salary for a graduate teaching assistant is low, the tuition waiver makes up for it. Still it would be nice to have a slightly higher salary.

    Advice to Management

    Recruit harder from within the program, and try to utilize the graduate school to foster more community between graduate programs.
