    Negative Outlook

    I worked at The Catholic University of Daegu full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    generous vacation time for faculty, almost 5 months per year. Very respectful students. Green beautiful campus. Light workload, nearly full autonomy and little bureaucracy in day to day teaching. Nearly free and rather nice accommodations.

    Cons

    Pay is low. It is a temporary job, most foreign faculty are cut after a couple of years. Air quality in S Korea is rather bad, everywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Take an advantage of the PhD surplus in Europe & USA and assemble an excellent international faculty team on cheap.


  2. Picturesque spacious campus

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at The Catholic University of Daegu full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The students are usually great, and the job itself is very rewarding. The pay and benefits aren't bad, either.

    Cons

    Management. It may not be like this in every department, but in my department middle and upper management didn't want to do any work at all. Not even recruiting for students. Honestly, it didn't seem like they really did anything at all.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together. You have some great programs and have had some great employees, but everything will be gone if you don't open your eyes very soon.
