    I worked at Randolph College full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    +Pay is the best in the region for academia
    +It isn't sunshine and rainbows quite yet, but the work environment is much better than before with four years of enrollment growth (despite being in the middle of a recession and small liberal arts colleges failing left and right)
    +Everyone absolutely loves the new administration that seems very responsive to students, faculty, and staff
    +Small size gives plenty of opportunities to cut through red-tape
    +Part of tuition exchange program for dependents

    Cons

    +Pay is far below national average (but cost of living is ridiculously cheap, so that isn't a deal breaker)
    +No tuition reimbursement for graduate coursework
    +Effectiveness of VPs vary by department
    +Still haven't quite left the "survival-mode" mentality, so management still expects an extraordinary amount of effort without additional compensation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    +Be willing to ax VPs from the previous administration. Some are highly regarded by their subordinates, but many are not.
    +Consider more ethnic diversity in mid-management/upper-management (there's no hint of racism on campus...but why are all the directors and VPs white, especially with such a diverse student body?)
