    I have been working at Santa Clara University full-time (more than an year)


    Beautiful campus. Polite students. Supportive faculty. Moderate support of research in terms of funds. Close community. If you are able to do some research, and not dedicate too much time to all of the possible service opportunities, you can have a nice work/life balance. Family friendly university.


    No graduate students. The university does not require, or reward, excellence. Many very intelligent faculty have a great deal of time on their hands to be concerned with committees, faculty senate, and student evaluations of teaching. This is fine, but there isn't always the social support to enable strong research because the culture demands a great deal of service. Also, this salaries within the College of Arts and Sciences are low, especially considering the extremely high cost of living in the Silicon Valley right now.
