Small, private college having an identity crisis - being run like a for-profit school

I worked at Morningside College part-time (more than an year)

Pros

The school is in a small town, if you like that sort of thing. Easy commute. The people are friendly, and there are some really dedicated teachers. Almost every professor and adjunct there is passionate about teaching.

Cons

The school is over-priced. I could not feel proud of our product (the education we were providing to our students). The teachers are undercompensated and felt very insecure. Whole departments in the humanities were laid off (even tenured professors) because the school is trying reinvent itself as a more technical college. New, full-time professors were being hired WITHOUT benefits. I was being paid so little, I couldn't afford to work there anymore.

    Pros

    Awesome School great atmosphere. The professors really know how to get on a personal level with the students and over all i really enjoyed my time.

    Cons

    The surrounding city is questionable at best. The air quality and water quality are not to great and it seems like the people here are a bit hostile towards outsiders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the school insulated
