    I have been working at Life University full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some of the students haven't been completely brainwashed by the Admin and Faculty.

    Time off (personal days) are available in appropriate quantity every year, should you need them, and they roll over to the next year if not used.

    Cons

    Stress levels of the average faulty member ranges from fairly high to gargantuan. This is not likely to change anytime soon.

    Health insurance is expensive with high deductibles and high co-pays. Many things are not covered. This is not likely to change for the better anytime soon and will probably get worse.

    One of the buildings has a horrible mold infestation that has closed several classrooms and the ventilation system for the whole building is probably spreading spores everywhere.

    If you do not get to campus before 8am there are few parking places available. Admin tried making faculty park off campus and wait for a bus to bring us in, but then blamed some committee for this horrible idea.

    Classes start at 7am and new faculty usually get assigned classes at this time. This is not likely to change anytime soon.

    Faculty/Admin politics is well beyond excessive and is getting noticeably worse. If you are one of the handful of "special people" (or spoken highly of by one of them), you will do well. But woe the day that a one of them decides he/she doesn't like you, as you will become permanently blacklisted by a large percentage of faculty. After this happens, you will typically be assigned to useless committees/projects, given an insane schedule (all 7am classes or days with 4-6 hours between classes), and/or only allowed to teach labs.

    There is no chance of advancement for faculty who only teach labs. This is not likely to change anytime soon.

    Be careful about sharing good ideas because they are often either stolen or trashed/badmouthed by someone of higher seniority who is afraid you will take their place.

    Department/Division chairs are less than competent. They are unable to fairly distribute assignments and course load. Most make up their minds about something early on and refuse to hear any more about it. None of them have any management skills to speak of and they are unable or unwilling to resolve any conflict between faculty members.

    If you are one of your chair's favorite faculty members you are lucky. You are highly praised, always get whatever you want, and can do no wrong (even if you actually break a lot of handbook rules, steal ideas, harass students and other faculty, etc.). If the chair has no feeling about you either way, you can squeak by unnoticed, but this means that you are never recognized for a job well done. If the chair decides he/she doesn't like you, you can be written up/disciplined for doing the exact same thing one of the "blessed favorites" has done (the difference is that the chair looks the other way for them and nails you). You can even be disciplined for something you never did!

    A lot of faculty are grossly unprofessional. Many express their opinions to students as if they were facts (despite literature that contradicts their opinion). Several have not updated their course material in 15-20 years. Some harass students for gender, race, ethnic, or age related reasons. Some even badmouth and try to turn students against other faculty. A few even harass other faculty members.

    Administration is only concerned about making money. Most decisions are made for the sole purpose of attracting as many students as possible (e.g. taking out parking lots and making a grassy park but never replacing the lots). Recruitment is full speed ahead despite the fact that classrooms are too small for incoming classes, parking is extremely insufficient, there are too few classrooms, and several classrooms are permanently closed due to unhealthy levels of mold in the rooms. Some students accepted fall well below the national average for intelligence. Faculty are encouraged to pass students who have no business graduating.

    A very large percentage of students encounter at last one class they can not pass without remediation. Some require remediation for more than 50% of classes.

    Many of the good faculty are quietly leaving this sinking ship.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1) Replace Department/Division chairs with people trained in management in an academic setting and are able to treat everyone equally.
    2) Build another parking structure near the classroom buildings.
    3) Build more facilities and update the ones already here to accommodate the class sizes Admin wants to have.
    4) Only admit students who are likely to finish the program without any coddling by remediation classes.
    5) Stop recruiting until facilities are up to par.
    6) Stop looking the other way when faculty harass students or other faculty.
