    Frustrating - Each year they put more responsibilities on junior faculty that have nothing to do with obtaining tenure.

    I have been working at Xavier University of Louisiana.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule with lots of holiday time off, since it follows the academic year. I love the summers off when I can do research, write or just take time to do other things.

    Cons

    Pressure to do a lot of things that are not related to obtaining tenure that take away from doing scholarly work, which is necessary to obtain tenure and promotion. Many criteria for tenure and promotion is obscure and they like it that way. There is no transparency nor clarity on pay raises. You can get promoted and not recieve a salary increase!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop play the "old poor me University" and hire people who know how to fund raise and no who are not afraid of making the university rich and expecting faculty to be happy with bread crumbs. The covert message sent is that you should be ashamed for wanting to make a good salary, instead of wanting to be like Mother Theresa. Hire student counselors to help with student retention and running freshman seminar.
