    Pros

    Nice town, great and convenient location.

    Cons

    Terrible and flawed grading system. Poor collegial relations amongst faculty. No support for junior faculty. Lots of false promises. Unfair and excessive workload unless you are a Reader/Professor. Money talks. Nobody cares.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wouldn't bother.
