    I worked at Swarthmore College full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great Students, good compensation package, very good academic resources, good work-life balance. The village is quaint and pretty and fairly tranquil, given its proximity to Philadelphia.

    Cons

    Everybody knows everybody, which in such a small place can lead to cliques and ostracizing of non-insiders. This certainly doesn't apply to all faculty and/or staff, but it is an element within the College.
