    I worked at East Tennessee State (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great students, supportive staff and faculty, good benefits for employees, good administration and student services.

    Cons

    Too many special interests instead of focusing on students' success. OIT is slow to respond or defaults to 'no', and physical plant has problematic areas. Salary low compared to peer institutions.

    Pros

    The supervisors are willing to work with you.
    You get to set you own hours.
    The office setting is quiet and people leave you alone so you can actually get stuff done.

    Cons

    They don't install the latest software on the computers.
    The office is not open on the weekends.
    All you get is a cubical not an entire office.
