I have been working at University of Puget Sound full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

The faculty here are truly incredible. They're excellent researchers and scholars, but all share a deep desire to connect with students and inspire them to do their best. The students are strong overall, and the best of them are truly excellent. Location is nice as well.

Cons

The university has implemented a fixed pay scale across academic departments. While some might consider this a plus, it has the unfortunate consequence of making it hard to hire in departments that have traditionally commanded a salary premium at other instutions (e.g. Econ or Business).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Workload is enormous. Breeds discontent.
