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

Pros

AU has great benefits, including tuition remission and a 2-for-1 match on up to a 5% donation to your 403 (b) retirement account. All the staff whom I work with truly value and care about the students.

Cons

There is, of course, internal politics, and the management skill can very from department to department. At its worst, upper level academicians may make decisions without collaborating/ seeking consensus with offices that may be impacted by those decisions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Think about how your decision impacts relevant offices on campus.
