    Pros

    I would reccommend this job to anybody. The people are great, semi relaxed atmosphere most of the time, and the benefits are good.

    Cons

    The hours can really vary day to day, at times the stress can be immense, and limited chances at promotion.

    Pros

    Everyone in here are helpful and understanding. The atmosphere is very good. Perfect place to study. There is nothing to disturb you. It is very good place to work.

    Cons

    It's a small city. So you have to depend on other big city like NashVille, KnoxVille. Sometimes the atmosphere is unpredictable.

    Pros

    Very flexible schedule that is family friendly (depending on your dept). Generous sick and annual leave. Low stress and great people

    Cons

    Since all the budgets come from TBR it is sometimes hard to get money. Low stress means that no one else is in a hurry.
