    Pros

    The support staff in the psychology department was incredibly helpful when it came to concerns and when problems arose with teaching assignments.

    Cons

    Semester to Semester variations in teaching availability. The availability to teaching positions was subject to departmental funding. In some programs you are less likely to receive a position the more years you are in the program.

    Advice to Management

    Don't assign Instructor of Record courses based on the graduate student's adviser's background instead of the student themselves in order to avoid having an Instructor who does not know more on the topic than what is in the book.

    Pros

    Benefits are pretty solid.
    Lots of vacation time if you can get it approved between projects
    Very understanding of family life.
    Good place to grow into new technology roles.

    Cons

    Pay has gotten better, but still doesn't match market rate.
    No real direction or priority being set by leadership.
    Project management and change management are haphazard at best.
    Work/life balance is hit or miss.

    Advice to Management

    Fix IT Governance
    Sort out what the priorities are and get ahead of the ball rather then always scrambling to figure out what's next.
