Pros

good practice of your communication skills. you learn to become an independent worker. Rather than being told what to do every step of the way, you learn to plan, execute, and self evaluate.

Cons

Need to communicate with professors carefully because each has his or her own expectations. Expectations can very greatly.

Advice to Management

Thank you for the opportunity.

    Teaching assistants get free spending account of $800-100% coverage in terms of dental, medical care. You can even buy prescription sunglasses with this insurance as long as you work 50 hours or longer.

    Cons

    Long hours of preparation
    No formal training before induction
    They typically don't hire undergraduate students for certain programs

    Advice to Management

    More evaluations required for employees- don't waste students' tuition fees!
