    I have been working at Gustavus Adolphus College full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -Flexible/mobile work environment
    -Great feeling of community
    -Campus-wide pride for the greater good
    -Benefits, although having recently been slashed a bit, are still quite acceptable for the industry
    -Many opportunities to participate in campus discussions outside of the individual department
    -Students are friendly, caring and accepting of others, as are staff

    Cons

    -Salaries, in general, are a bit low, but if you are working in education for the money, you are in the wrong industry
    -Sometimes upper management/officials of the college can seem difficult to reach
    -There is a lot of focus on "bottom lines" and not enough focus on ideas that cannot be fiscally measured

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen openly to all professors/administrators/support staff and engage them in open conversations to help them (and the college) thrive.
