    Pros

    You get to talk about poetry all day, your teaching assignment involves teaching really really smart kids, and there are adequate colleagues.

    Cons

    The anti-union policies mean that the administration can unilaterally change work policies/funding policies, without warning or consultation. The hours suck (so does all grad school, though).
