I have been working at Austin College full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
-Faculty are excellent, and working with students is marvelous.
-Lots of opportunities for personal hobbies and interests.
-Work is varied but not overly taxing day to day.Cons
-Staff and faculty do not mix at all; they are treated as separate "classes."
-Some departments are extremely poorly run and good luck to you if you end up in one of them. They are all talk and no fixing.
-Moral can get very low.
-Internal politics are an absolute mess.
-Staff are underpaid and overworked. Insufficient precautions are taken during hazardous weather, forcing staff to come in (or take a day off) while faculty can cancel class. This has resulted in several broken bones/car accidents.Advice to ManagementAdvice
