Cons: long hours, no opportunity for advancement, no training
This is not the place to work if you don't plan to stay there 30 years. Pay is mediocre, especially given the high cost of living in the city. I spent 8 years as a houly, temp, and limited term employee with low pay and no benefits until I begrudgingly received a full-time permanent position, only because the law limits the term you can spend as a temporary employee. I did not patronize my boss, and this was a mistake. Just like the students, if you want to excel or even just survive, the professors and princely admins on Bascom Hill are always right and can do no wrong.
