Great people make great workplace!
Great job. Instructors are very supportive. It was temporary so you can't take it for granted unless it is a PhD program. Some of the instructors give you too much freedom, if you can utilize the space, the job gets easier. Otherwise works pile up and tough to meet deadline.
