I have been working at Northern Michigan University

Pros

Marquette is a great place to live, if you like four seasons. It is especially good for active people who enjoy outdoor activities and sports.
The university is a pretty good place to work. The people in the U.P. and very friendly and there is very little crime.

Cons

NMU seems to always have a financial crisis because of the state of Michigan's financial problems.
The State's politicians are openly hostile to public education and public employees.
University facilities vary greatly. Look carefully to see how your department is set up.
Make sure your offer letter specifically credits you for prior experience or you'll be starting with zero foe promotion purposes.
