I have been working at Notre Dame full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

The university has first-rate resources across the board for teaching, research, and recreation. Students are generally a pleasure to teach, mature and hard working. I've grown to like living in northern Indiana, proximity to Lake Michigan and Chicago.

Cons

While ND's strong sense of tradition has many advantages, it can also make the university feel insular, and making changes that buck the system require a lot of patience.

    Pros

    If you have children, the education benefit is great. The retirement benefits are also extremely competitive.

    Cons

    The salaries are very low. They are not competitive with other organizations in the area and the University has the mentality that it is a "non-profit," so they are not able to pay what other "for-profit" organizations pay and that you should just feel lucky to work there. The University does not do a good job of recognizing hard work. The pay increases are likely to stay low as the University has finally recognized that it cannot continue to raise tuition costs at such a rapid rate. There is very little flexibility as far as work schedule.
