Pros

Decent salary, time off, close to home, good pension plan, enjoy all that the city offers, very rewarding, and never boring

Cons

Very high stress levels, administration expects way more than what one can do in a reasonable time, students can be difficult

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remember that your teachers are professionals, and in most cases, don't need to be micromanaged. Also, be more reasonable in your due dates and time frames.
