    Pros

    The university is centrally located in the center and has great facilities. Health care benefits are exclelent

    Cons

    Pay is low for a required 4/4 teaching load. The administration is corrupt and they do things backwards. UT does not invest in retaining visiting professors. The administration also lacks a level of professional when it comes to communicating to faculty about renewal of contracts or lack there of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more tenured and tenure track faculty.
