I have been working at Western Washington University part-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Beautiful area, great campus, committed colleagues and supportive staff. So much to take advantage of both on campus and off that it's hard not to want to stay forever.

Cons

Very low pay compared to similarly sized universities. Great if you like rain and 45 degree weather 80% of the year.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There has to be more than the area (salaries!) to keep and attract top teachers and professionals. Even moving to the middle of the salary pack would be a huge improvement.
