I have been working at Michigan State University full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Flexible about work schedule and very family friendly

Cons

If you are non-tenure stream faculty in a department, treated like second-class citizen and paid very poorly, even if you hold a PhD. No career advancement for non-tenure track faculty and really very little mentoring as well: a very 'sink-or-swim' environment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Consider talking to non-tenure stream faculty more and mentoring their careers.
