    Pros

    It's a beautiful campus with some great people.

    Cons

    I was promised one rate for teaching a class, but the contract that FINALLY arrived (several weeks after I had started) had a different amount and no one had the "authority" to correct it. I decided to finish the semester, but never got my student evaluations even after several requests. In the end, I made less per hour than the TAs that supported me. No thanks.
