    Pros

    -Close to Bar Harbor
    -Relatively easy access to New Brunswick and to Nova Scotia
    -Individuals generally schedule their own hours

    Cons

    -Students are terrible (never prepared, blame adjunct and faculty for all their [student's] problems)
    -Pay is severely below average for all positions
    -High cost of living
    -High staff & faculty turnover
    -Uninspiring work environment
    -Exceptional and outstanding teaching is not recognized by students or faculty
    -Town and surrounding area are lifeless and a total dump

    Advice to Management

    Staff and faculty keep leaving because students are so dull and dense. Improve this and more people will stop quitting!
