I have been working at University of Maine at Machias full-time for more than 3 years
Pros – -Close to Bar Harbor
-Relatively easy access to New Brunswick and to Nova Scotia
-Individuals generally schedule their own hours
Cons – -Students are terrible (never prepared, blame adjunct and faculty for all their [student's] problems)
-Pay is severely below average for all positions
-High cost of living
-High staff & faculty turnover
-Uninspiring work environment
-Exceptional and outstanding teaching is not recognized by students or faculty
-Town and surrounding area are lifeless and a total dump
Advice to Senior Management – Staff and faculty keep leaving because students are so dull and dense. Improve this and more people will stop quitting!
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
