    I have been working at University of North Carolina full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I am an instructor for an introductory course for statistics. It helps me get prepared for further career life and practice my english speaking.

    Cons

    Due to the government funding, the salary for an instructor is only a little bit higher than TA's. However, I need to spend 10 more hours

    Advice to Management

    Please balance the salary with the real working hours.
