    Pros

    Fairly laid back environment, although the start of semesters are always hectic. You work for the state, technically, so you do have great benefits.

    Cons

    Insurance is free for the employee, although you pay quite a bit to add others. Much higher premium than a private employer.

    Pros

    The school has good benefits and is dedicated to work life balance. The people are friendly and the students are nice.

    Cons

    The pay is lower then other schools and ECU is behind on the advancements that other institutions are setting in place.

    Advice to Management

    Benchmark some other schools, increase salaries to be more competitive and start recruiting from other places instead of hiring internally so often.

    Pros

    The position is catered to graduate students. It is flexible, educational, pays decently, develops your skills, and contacts you with professors on campus.

    Cons

    It can consist of a fair amount of busy work at times. The work load waxes and wanes, which can sometimes bite you in the butt if you're not expecting the work load to increase out of nowhere.

    Pros

    ECU is historically a teachers college, and remains one to this day. It is not a research university, as it claims to be. If teaching at a small college is for you, go for it.

    Cons

    The bureaucracy is so thick you could swim in it. You can't go to the bathroom without first asking for approval.

    Advice to Management

    Please, please honor contracts. Don't hire an adjunct for a distance education (online) gig, cancel it due to incompetence on their part, then actually withdrawn money previously dispatched to the employee. This is sleazy; it treats your adjuncts with disrespect.
