    I have been working at Columbia University part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You can learn much more for that course, and improve your teaching ability. You also can learn a lot form students' questions. Working as a assistant of the professor is also a good experience in student life.

    Cons

    Salary is a little bit low. As not good as before. But the workload is the same. Sometimes there are some students disputing their grades of HW or exams, sometimes it's hard to handle difficult situations.
