    I worked at Northeastern Illinois University full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Academic job in great location, urban Chicago. Some departments are excellent, in terms of the faculty both in professional and personal co-worker terms. A sometimes rewarding diversity of students. Faculty can take classes for free, for credit.

    Cons

    Weak union, low pay, pressure to keep academic standards low, very bad academic reputation can hurt career potential after a stint here, peculiar portfolio tenure retention process involves even more subjectivity and uncertainty than usual. Very little university level support for research and publication and yet the tenure process involves relatively high expectations at the same time.

    Advice to Management

    Need more full time faculty, too much reliance on very low paid adjuncts. Raise minimum level academic standards, so that the degree is worth more to graduates. Spend more resources on developing working remedial and other academic student support programs, rather than pressuring faculty to raise graduation rates by lowering scholastic standards. Target programs and departments with the most notably low standards for raising literacy (education, criminal justice).
